Digital Trends: "An affordable 360 solution by using the camera tech already inside the iPhone."
The Verge: "There’s a new 360-degree lens you can attach to your iPhone to record photos and videos."
Stuff: "The little gizmo’s proprietary lens system uses your iPhone’s existing camera rather than an external one, so all you need to do is clip it on."
It all started when three friends and classmates wanted a simple way to capture 360° photo and video, without extra hassle and without breaking the bank.
That solution didn't exist. So, they created Fishball.
Fishball is the only device of its kind that lets you capture in full 360 degrees, using your phone's powerful rear camera. It's ultra-portable and super simple to use. If you can record with a phone, you can record with Fishball.
Best of all, it uses special optics, not electronics, so there's nothing to charge, no memory cards to buy, and no wireless pairing required. Just clip it on and shoot.
Fishball's proprietary lens system utilizes your iPhone's existing camera to capture every angle and every detail of your moments. And since everything is captured directly on your phone and not on a separate memory card, you can instantly share to platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo—basically any platform that hosts 360° images and videos.
As a bonus, Fishball is future-proof and works across multiple phone models. So the next time you upgrade your iPhone and its camera, Fishball upgrades along with you!
Fishball is compatible with iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, and the brand-new iPhone X.

The three co-founders met as UC Berkeley-Haas MBA students and geeked over the potential of bringing consumer-friendly, affordable, and simple 360° camera to market.
360° content and Virtual Reality (VR) represent the new frontier in visual content, one that has the ability to transport and connect people like nothing else. Goldman Sachs predicts that the AR/VR market will reach as much as $180B by 2025—over 33% larger than the laptop computer market!
We're Yuriy, Tony, and Sora, three MBA students from the prestigious Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. We came together to address the biggest roadblock for bringing the benefits of VR to everybody: capturing 360° content easily and at an affordable price.
Instead of creating another cumbersome and non-intuitive 360° camera (not to mention expensive), we decided to take the most powerful device people already own, your smartphone, and harness that power to record in 360° directly. And thus, Fishball was born!
With your help, the Fishball team will be able to give everyone the ability to capture stunning 360° content just by using their phones. But we can't do it without your help.
We've funded this ourselves so far, but your pledge will allow us to create the injection molding tools required to mass-produce Fishball at an affordable price.
So please, back Fishball today, and join us as we make the VR movement accessible and fun for everyone!
