What I made is a shooting stand that holds a smartphone and turns it around while it captures a 360 degrees panorama! In my case it is an iPod, but it does not matter, anything works.
It has two axles and turns the phone all around just as you would do to shoot the panorama.
All you will need except from the shooting stand is an application that will shoot the panorama for you. Just turn in on and power up the panorama shooting stand, that's it.
