Ball Camera Takes Panoramic Photos

Dylan Love, writing for Silicon Alley Insider:

“This ball is loaded with an array of 36 regular cameras and it takes a panoramic picture when you throw it into the air and it reaches the highest point of the toss. The 360-degree photographs are fully viewable using special software on your computer.”

Really neat device designed for the creator’s thesis project. He’s got a patent on it, so maybe we’ll see them for sale one day. Think of all the fun uses you could come up with!
