The camera that captures 360 degree images up in air

Chuck it around and the Panono camera ball takes 360 degree images that can be pieced together into one giant shot. BBC Click takes it for a test drive.

The Panono camera ball takes 360 degree photographs when it is thrown in the air.

The sphere is covered by 36 cameras which, once airborne, simultaneously capture individual images – these are then pieced together in the cloud to produce a 108 megapixel image which can be explored in any direction.

BBC Click's Spencer Kelly reports.
