    Giroptic makes a splash with Facebook

    22 May 2017 | Front page, ICT, A region on the move

    At Facebook’s annual conference in California, an enthusiastic Mark Zuckerberg gave a Giroptic iO camera to every attendee—and wrote a $1 million check to the Lille-based start-up.

    On April 18, 2017, each attendee at Zuckerberg’s annual Facebook Developer Conference—4,400 people in all—received a complimentary Giroptic iO 360-degree camera. It was a huge boost for the Hauts-de-France company, and a first for a start-up at the event.

    Giroptic iO is an iPhone/iPad accessory that lets users produce 360-degree photos and video and share them live. Unlike some of its competitors, which transfer images to smartphones over a WiFi network, the Giroptic iO connects directly to the phone and delivers images instantaneously.

    About Giroptic

    Founded in 2008, Giroptic specializes in 360-degree image capture and virtual reality. It is based at EuraTechnologies in Lille, and in 2016 opened a San Francisco office to track markets more closely.
