If you’re a viewer of the reality show Shark Tank, you already know about Cycloramic, the smartphone app that lets you take 360-degree panoramic videos without touching your phone.

No, it doesn’t work through sorcery or magic.  Rather, it uses the smartphone’s vibrations to spin 360 degrees on any appropriately smooth and flat surface as it takes the video necessary for the panorama.

As you might imagine, Cycloramic in action made for a pretty impressive presentation.  So impressive, in fact, that Mark Cuban invested $500,000 in the app, even though the app’s creator Bruno Francois was only looking for a $90,000 investment. And it ended up being a good call by Cuban, since within an hour of Cycloramic’s appearance on the show, 100,000 people downloaded the app, and now it has well over 8 million total downloads.
