This Throwable Camera Ball Snaps 360-Degree Aerial Photos

• http://www.wired.com, By Tim Moynihan
Pictured above is Jonas Pfeil, president and co-founder of Panono. Panono is a ball that has 36 three-megapixel cameras built into it. The one Pfeil is holding in the picture is a working prototype version, and it’s about the size of a volleyball. The final shipping unit — Panono successfully raised $1.25 million on Indiegogo and will start shipping units in September — is more like the size of a softball.

To operate Panono, you simply throw it in the air. The ball has a sensor inside that recognizes when it has reached the apex of its airborne journey. At this point, it automatically fires all the shutters at once, capturing a 108-megapixel, 360-degree panoramic photograph.
