A new device can bring an extra level of excitement and interactivity to any action video or simply be used to ensure absolutely everyone is in frame when taking a family photo.



Unlike a lot of other gadgets and gizmos that promise to capture 360° panoramic videos and stills photos, the Eye Mirror has been designed to work with the owner's existing kit -- whether a Go Pro action camera, a camcorder, a DSLR or point and shoot camera -- rather than as an expensive standalone borderline novelty item.

Despite being an extension it's still expensive at $195 but no more so than an additional lens for a decent DSLR. Simply attach directly (or via an adaptor for point and shoot digital cameras), point upwards and hit the shutter release.

The Eye Mirror is capable of capturing a 3020x3020 pixel resolution at 22 Frames Per Second and can even be ordered with a waterproof housing for extreme athletes and underwater shooting.

The resulting images and videos can be viewed on a computer or on a mobile device and are interactive. You can pan around the images and, of course, share them via social media.

The Eye Mirror launched a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter earlier this month and has already managed to surpass its initial £14,000 ($23,000) target meaning that the first examples will be shipped to their backers in February.
