360 degree full spherical panoramic camera
Oct 18, 2011

This looks pretty cool. I wish I knew where to get one.

"Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera which captures a full spherical panorama when thrown into the air."

"Our camera uses 36 fixed-focus 2 megapixel mobile phone camera modules. The camera modules are mounted in a robust, 3D-printed, ball-shaped enclosure that is padded with foam and handles just like a ball. Our camera contains an accelerometer which we use to measure launch acceleration. Integration lets us predict rise time to the highest point, where we trigger the exposure. After catching the ball camera, pictures are downloaded in seconds using USB and automatically shown in our spherical panoramic viewer. This lets users interactively explore a full representation of the captured environment."
