Because I have no clue how to take great photographs like the ones I see on the Interwebs, I often want to throw my camera. If I had this throwable panoramic ball camera, I could work on my skills and get out my frustration all at once. Started as a thesis project by Jonas Pfeil, the Ball Camera comes with 36 two megapixel cameras and an accelerometer which helps the camera to trigger when it is suspended in the air momentarily. When the photographer tosses the prototype into the air, naturally it will hang there for a moment before falling down to ground, in that instant the camera would take the 360 degree panoramic image.
