Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera

The Ball Camera - crazy new photographic tool with full 3D Panorama — presented at SIGGRAPH Asia 2011. Very Cool!

The Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera (Patent Pending) captures a full spherical panorama when thrown into the air. At the peak of its flight a panoramic image is captured by 36 mobile phone camera modules inset into the sphere. Just make sure you have good hands, because you need to catch the ball on its return to Earth.



A project of the Computer Graphics Group, TU Berlin.
