SmartPhones are versatile devices with capabilities from Navigation to Augmented Reality. Nowadays your phone does everything replacing the SatNav, Camera, MP3 player, etc. Oh and surprise, surprise, you can actually make phone calls with it!

One of the more innovative uses for the SmartPhone see the camera being used to make 360 degree panoramas with GPS location embedded. This is not a novel idea and there are many ways to achieve this, including built in software on the latest iPhones. However there are many shortcomings to a lot of these implementations. Bubble Pix have come up with a simple solution to create some stunning panoramas called the BubbleScope.

The BubbleScope is essentially a bit of hardware that attaches to your phone which when combined with a free app from BubblePix creates the panorama vistas. The BubbleScope is available for iPhone 4 and 5, the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the Blackberry Z10. My review sample was for the iPhone 5.

Looking at that long flying fox video on the company website, it strikes me that this would be great for cyclists who wish to document road journeys and near misses (or collisions!) in traffic, as it could act as front rear and side view cam all at once. I know of a good handful who run rear cams as well as front cams so they can see the build up to incidents - this camera would do all that and more.

Probably about the same as with Apple and their software rework so as to mess up your Camera data application abilities with it.

Live with it, work with it & through it all.

Not sure about the 30 degrees you mention in Fla, I believe it was 30, but it could have been like it will be here, 105 today.
