BubblePod™ is a clockwork turntable that rotates your smartphone smoothly and silently. As it spins, our free BubblePix™ App creates a perfect 360º image. No messy joins. No batteries. No hassle. Just perfect Bubbles!
The BubblePod takes all the human error out of taking 360 pictures, holding your phone and keeping it all smooth and level. So you can just sit back and let it do its thing. Time for a 360 selfie!
I'm a Pro! What's the Pro Pack Upgrade?
Select the Pro Pack upgrade and the BubblePod smartphone turntable will also ship with our custom BubblePix wide angle lens that increases your smartphone's vertical field of view to 120º, allowing you to capture truly professional 360º x 120º images in less than a minute with total simplicity on your iOS or (Major) Android Handset.
The lens attaches using a clever loop system to securely hold it onto most handsets, and if you already own a BubbleScope, the Pro Pack lens will attach onto the BubblePix case included with the 'Scope for even more secure and simpler operation. If you don't own a BubbleScope and want a high quality ABS case for your 'phone then find them here.

Sounds great - what else do I need to know?
The BubblePod™ is a clockwork turntable that grips your smartphone and then rotates it 360º. Totally smoothly, totally silently.
As it does so, the BubblePix App (Available on Apple, Android and BlackBerry 10) captures an absolutely perfect 360º image. You simply rotate it once to wind it up, fire up the App and then hit the button. As your smartphone spins our BubblePix app captures images using your smartphone’s camera and then stiches them together to make a perfect high-resolution 360º image. Really simply and with a superb ‘professional’ result every time. We call them Bubbles and you can shoot and share them in less than a minute.
The BubblePod™ achieves a perfect horizontal rotation and maintains a constant vertical camera position. This makes stitching multiple images together to make a perfect 360º far easier because there is less error to correct. That means perfect Bubbles first time, every time. No need to re-touch and invisible blend lines between the frames. The best panorama apps on the market (including those native in the OS platforms) are the ones that best counteract the inherent variation in the separate images caused by trying to rotate the handset manually. That’s why some don’t actually let you go full 360º, they know the chance of matching the vertical position all the way round is pretty slim even when guided by the gyro in your smartphone. The BubblePod™ (patents pending!) just makes it effortless. Hit the button and then step back to let it do its thing.
Using the BubblePodTM is a handsfree experience. So if you don't want to be in the Bubble, you can just stay behind the camera as it spins. Or just sit back and smile!

Get an even bigger picture with our BubblePod™ Pro pack!
The standard BubblePod™ captures approximately 60º Vertical Field Of View because that is the Vertical Field of View (VFOV) for your smartphone’s camera giving you a 360º x 60º image.
Sometimes you need a bit more that that so we’ve developed our own custom wide-angle lens that increases the field of view of your smartphone to 120º.
This means that not only do you get a full 360º image as the BubblePod™ rotates but you double the VFOV too. 360º x 120º. There’s not much that you’ll miss now!
It is perfect for capturing smaller indoor spaces or just getting an even fuller picture than before. Our lens is supplied in our BubblePod™ Pro pack with a universal clip that means you can quickly and easily attach it to a variety of smartphones. It also comes with the same bayonet connection as our BubbleScope™, so if you have a BubbleScope™ or BubbleScope™ case (available separately) you can simply use it to connect your wide-angle lens. Easy!
Connect our wide-angle lens using either our smartphone case (supplied with our BubbleScope™) or a universal clip (supplied in our BubblePod™ Pro Pack).
