The Panono Camera – a throwable ball camera that produces fully 360ºx360º, 108-megapixel spherical images, and which debuted in a hugely successful  crowdfunding campaign earlier this year, will begin shipping in Spring 2015, according to inventor Jonas Pfeil.

The Berlin-based startup broke the record for the most successful crowdfunding campaign in Germany when its Indiegogo campaign raised $1.25m in early 2014. Since then, the company has completed its final mechanical design and the first electronic prototypes are in production and will soon be undergoing testing.

Today, Panono shared news that its first cameras will begin shipping in Spring 2015, firstly to the company’s crowdfunding backers.

The Panono is a grapefruit-sized, ball-shaped camera with 36 camera modules embedded around it that fire simultaneously at the highest point when the camera is thrown into the air to capture fully spherical, 108-megapixel panoramic images. Viewing Panono panoramas on a mobile device with the free Panono App offers a unique immersive experience in which the viewer moves through images simply by tilting their device up and down, left and right, and all around as if inside the image.

The Panono Panoramic Ball Camera is still available for pre-order at the discounted price of $549 USD on the Panono website
