Amazing Panoramic Camera Ball

The throwable panoramic camera allows users to take 360 degree pictures by simply tossing it in the air.  Developed by the Computer Graphics Group in Berlin, this ball contains 36 mobile phone cameras all set to take a picture at the same time when the ball’s accelerometer senses that it’s falling from the high point of a toss.  Each camera’s picture is stored in memory and can be used later with a custom application to put together amazing images.

The camera ball is currently only in its development stages, but the chances seem good that someone will turn this handy invention into a product.  As they say, one picture (or 36 in this case) is worth a thousand words.  See the camera ball in action in this YouTube video.
