Cycloramic automatically rotates your iPhone 5 to capture handsfree 360 degree video

Cycloramic is a really fun video recording app that will automatically spin your iPhone 5 around and record a video. As long as your iPhone 5 is placed on a smooth, flat surface, Cycloramic will use the vibrator in the iPhone 5 to make it spin 360 degrees. Not only is this impressive and just a lot of fun to watch, but Cycloramic is a great way to capture video of everyone sitting at a table during a dinner party or family gathering.

To use Cycloramic, you must make sure your iPhone 5 is set to vibrate on silent and to vibrate on ring, remove any case that may be on your iPhone 5, place it upright on a smooth flat surface, and hit Go! It'll countdown from 3 and start the spinning and recording. Check out the video below for an example video made with Cycloramic.

As of right now, Cycloramic only supports the iPhone 5 and video recording, but the folks at Egos Ventures promises that that next version will support the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as well as panoramic photos. Make sure to check out the video below for a sneak peek at Cycloramic 2.0.

Cycloramic is one of those "you have to see it to believe it" apps and guaranteed to draw some crowds at your next social gathering.

Depending on the case, and how often you'd make use of this app, that could get mildly annoying. On an unrelated note, methinks your dog wants to play:)

I downloaded it a couple of weeks ago. I had to see if it worked! Well, it does! But sometimes my phone falls face first.
