Okay . . . maybe not the coolest but still . . . oh so awesome.

If you have an iPad, iPhone or iPod, you need to try the free app Dermander. Dermander is an app that quickly and easily takes a 360 degree photograph.

You can then share out the image in a variety of ways – Facebook, Twitter, email, etc. You can also create a free account that allows you to link to a site that provides a full 360 degree video of your image.

Pretty awesome.

I used the app to take a Dermanter pic outside of the Podstock 2011 conference center.

You can also view the 360 degree version online.
