If you haven’t heard, “Shark Tank” is an ABC reality TV series that revolves around business pitches from aspiring entrepreneurs to a panel of potential investors, called “sharks.” And in the latest and just-aired episode of the show, Cycloramic walked away with a cool $500K for 15% of their company. WIN!

According to data from Appstatics, its Studio 360 Panorama edition jumped more than 200 places to the No. 1 spot, and its Pro edition jumped more than 300 places to No. 2.

Cycloramic’s main selling point is its hands-free operation, enabling one to capture panoramas by having the iPhone vibrate and automatically turn in a full circle. Check out this demo:

    What no one realized in this overheated run for the money is that this patent is dependent on the phone being able to stand on its base. The iPhone 5c does NOT stand on its base as the iPhone 5s does. The next generation of iPhones might not stand on its base anymore.

    I bought it right after I watched Shark Tank. I was skeptical on how well it works. I have been pleasantly surprised that it works almost as well as the video shows. It is really important that the phone is on a flat, solid surface. If there is any give at all in the surface the vibrations won’t be able to turn the phone.
