Cool thesis project - a 360 degree panoramic "throwable" ball camera

Jonas Pfeil designed this "Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera," as part of his thesis project at the Technical University of Berlin, creates spherical panoramas after being thrown into the air.

The camera "captures an image at the highest point of flight—when it is hardly moving."

It "takes full spherical panoramas, requires no preparation and images are taken instantaneously. It can capture scenes with many moving objects without producing ghosting artifacts and creates unique images." Pic Video
