Finally, A Camera You’re EXPECTED To Throw [VIDEO]

Check this out, it’s a camera that you can throw up in the air to capture 360 degree panoramic views. So now you can finally figure who that weird person following you, really looks like.

The Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera is a foam-padded ball studded with 36 fixed-focus, 2-megapixel mobile phone camera modules capable of taking a 360-degree panoramic photo.

But how does it work?!

You use the camera by throwing it directly in the air. When the camera reaches the apex — measured by an accelerometer in the camera — all 36 cameras automatically take a picture. These distinct pictures are then digitally stitched together and uploaded via USB where they are presented in a spherical panoramic viewer. This lets users interactively explore their photos including a zoom function.

But apparently the current iteration is not with out it’s drawbacks. The quality of the image is not that great, by today’s standards. And the quality really starts to deteriorate when you try to zoom into specific elements. Also, you better make sure you have a steady hand. Any spin given to the ball while throwing it is going to distort the images that are captured.

At the moment, the ball is not available for purchase. But the good news is, the inventors are waiting on patent approval. Once that’s finished, you can probably expect to find these…somewhere.
