This new camera prototype, by Jonas Pfeil, is a padded ball that can be thrown into the air to capture a full 360 degree view of the world. It features 36x 2 megapixel camera phone modules, and a built in accelerometer allows the camera to take photos when at the highest point.



The resulting panoramic shot is then viewed using the spherical panoramic viewer, after connecting the camera using it's USB connection. Images: Jonas Pfeil.

It seems to me to be another of those projects that makes you ask why? It'd be fun for about 5 minutes, but then what do you do with this (probably) expensive toy?

Depending on the price might be something cool to keep around, and as it takes no film you don't need to worry about replacing stuff provided it takes long lasting batteries.
