How it works: Fishball clips directly over your iPhone via a secure locking mechanism. From there, a proprietary, patent-pending system of fisheye lenses and mirrors enables your phone’s native camera to capture in true 360 degrees. The user simply launches the free Fishball App to begin recording photos and videos as usual.
Says founder Yuriy Pryadko, “The hassle and price of standalone 360° cameras are big barriers to this extremely beneficial technology. We realized we could harness the power of our incredible iPhone cameras and create the simplest, most accessible solution out there using optics, rather than electronics… 360° content is the ultimate way to relive a memory, whether the moment is yours or from someone you love.”
Why it matters: Unlike other 360° cameras in the market, Fishball is simply an attachment that utilizes your phone’s existing capabilities, without requiring electronics. This allows the user to begin shooting 360° right away with no complicated setup, charging batteries, bluetooth pairing, or installing memory cards, at an affordable cost.
