Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera

Oh. Good. Grief. This is so un-bloody-believably cool. It’s a ball with 36 digital camera modules which you throw into the air. It has an accelerometer that tells it when it’s reached its highest point, at which time it takes pictures. Custom software lets you play with that. Image quality isn’t going to be perfect, but from this demo it looks good enough to be a seriously nice toy. Me want.
