Remember Cycloramic, the app that used the iPhone’s vibrator to have it auto-rotate to take 360 degree pictures? Founder Bruno Francois did an impromptu demo after one of my mobile photography presentations at PMA 6 or 7 years ago and wowed everyone. Then he started pivoting, got Marc Cuban to invest in him, and turned his technology into a 3D solution for the car industry.
