    30 seconds in and I have a few issues. First, extreme sports. Who the drat is going to skate, snowboard, etc. holding their phone up over their head. Two, I say holding it up over their head because who wants panorama if your body is a quarter of the view. Third, who is going to risk their iPhone to tape stuff when for half the cost of your soon to need replacement phone you can buy a camera that does the same thing and is helmet mountable solving all of the above problems.
    As a smaller side note, what`s the benefit in a panoramic video exactly for the average joe?

    Not to mention it looks like you can`t have a protective case on it already in order to fit it on and it doesn`t fully protect the phone itself. Totally how I`d like my phone if I were using in situations likely to put the phone in really rough drop conditions.
    Then again for those who are way into apple I guess buying yet another replacement for your iPhone before you really needed to is just going toward buying more prestige with your hipster friends. Geez, and I didn`t even stop to think how creative and professional you`d appear to them, it`s almost be like buying an expensive Canon to take mirror shots of yourself but incorporating your iPhone as well. A hipster wet dream!

    just what i want to do when i`m snowboarding, riding a rollercoaster, or driving (that seems safe) i would love to hold my phone the entire time. that`s cool for maybe a concert or something, but for extreme sports i think it`s absolutely idiotic.

    80 bucks for a piece of plastic? You realize what this is. It`s a piece of plastic with a lens in it that warps the light coming in from 360 degrees.

    80 bucks. For a piece of plastic. The app is free, as they said...

    Bahahaha! Oh lord... that`s almost as heavily marked up as the iPhone itself. I`d rather buy $500 of bottled water.
