It seems like everybody is getting into the panoramic game on the iPhone recently. The other day, Microsoft released Photosynth an app that allowed users to easily stitch together photographs to create panoramic images on their iPhones. Now, EveryScape has just released a new app called UScapeit – an app that makes use of the iPhone (or any other iOS device with a camera)’s video taking capabilities to generate 3D panoramas.
All users have to do is imagine the iOS device they are holding in their hands is a pole. Users then start recording and walk around in a circle around the imaginary pole, taking as long as 40 seconds per revolution to for best results. The app then takes the video footage and converts it into a panoramic 3D experience that users can relive on their phones or through the UScapeit website.
The completed 360 degree panoramas are called “scapes” and can be easily shared via email, Facebook or on the iOS device itself. Head to the UScapeit website to view some examples of “scapes” created with the app. Download Uscape it from the App Store for free now. Promo video after the break:
