If you’re an eBay or Etsy seller of small items, a product reviewer like me or someone who just likes to goof around with photography gadgets, you will want to check out the Foldio360 turntable project on Kickstarter. Made by the same guys that brought use the Foldio portable photography studio, which earned a spot on my favorite gear page, the Foldio360 is the perfect companion to the studio. It’s a smart turntable that pairs via Bluetooth with your smartphone. Using the Foldio360 app, the turntable will automatically spin as the phone snaps pictures. Then the app will combine the individual images to create a 360 degree spinning image that you can use on web pages. The Foldio360 also features a special lighting system called Halo Edge to make the spinning image appear as if it is suspended in space. The Foldio360 Kickstarter project’s goal has already been surpassed by almost $100,000. You can reserve a Foldio360 for $89 or a Foldio360 Studio set that includes a Foldio Studio for $149. Shipping is estimated for July, 2016.
