Remember when the Matrix took the world by storm? What a silly question – of course you do. And if you’re anything like us, you probably spent much of the early noughties doing upside down karate kicks (and breaking everything) in your living room.

Well, what if we told you that your dream of being a futuristic cyber-ninja just got one step closer to becoming a reality?

Allow us to introduce our amazing, new 360 Bullet Rig!

Now, party people can capture all of their impressive kicks, aerial manoeuvers and world-renowned dance moves with that same mind-blowing effect that’s kept that movie at the top of our Netflix queue for so many years.

How Does it Work?

We might make being awesome look easy, but the technology powering our one-of-a-kind photo experiences is anything but – especially where the Bullet Rig is concerned.

The circular, Bullet Rig frame can be rigged with up to 100 cameras, which are programmed to fire off simultaneously, capturing all of the fun-filled action from every possible angle. Our software then stitches the shots together into one seamless, animated panorama that can be shared (and re-watched incessantly) in the form of a short GIF, social media-ready video or even a nifty, 3D flipbook!

The Rig in Action

Back in September, The Flash Pack teamed up with GQ for the 18th annual Men of the Year Awards at the Royal Opera House in London. We decided to bring along a 60-camera, 270-degree Bullet Rig to see what the red carpet elite would make of it.

Surprisingly enough, it seems that celebrities like cool stuff too, and stars like Chris O’Dowd, Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin were lining up to snap their Matrix-style shots with the Rig.

They were then invited to upload their videos with the #GQAwards hashtag via The Flash Pack’s social sharing station. Now, Emilia Clarke’s Bullet Rig video has already been viewed over 5,000 times on the GQ Facebook page – but all things considered, that shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone.

But you don’t have to be an A-lister to have this good of a time – the Bullet Rig is the perfect choice for any company party, awards ceremony or fundraiser. Your guests will be eternally grateful to you – and everyone who bailed will live out the rest of their days wracked with regret.
