Here’s a fun gizmo perfect for summer vacations: the GoPano micro, a lens for the iPhone 4 and 4S that enables you to create panoramic videos. Just snap the lens to your iPhone and tap “Record” to make cool, interactive, 360-degree videos. Record your next concert or sporting event, or make a streetview video in a new city. A specially curved mirror gathers light from all directions and funnels it into your iPhone’s camera — then the free GoPano app transforms this image into a live interactive scene where you control the view. Instantly upload and share your videos on the GoPano website and beyond. It’s a whole new way to come full circle. $79.95.
