Throwable Camera-Ball Captures a 360° Panoramic Photo in Mid-Air

Our friends at Popular Photography found a concept camera we'd definitely love to try: a throwable, ball-shaped camera that uses its 36 cellphone camera sensors to take a 360° panoramic shot when thrown. It actually senses the apogee of its toss--the moment when it's suspended at its highest point--and captures its entire surroundings simultaneously.
