Panono panoramic ball camera takes selfies to a new level
HI, I'm Lexy Savvides for CNET at CES 2014 taking a first look at the Panono Panoramic Ball Camera taking selfies to a whole new level.
So, what you do is you throw this camera up into the air with two hands.
It takes a photo as it reaches the highest point, a 360-degree interactive panorama.
That's all comes down to this 36 cameras that are dotted all around this ball's surface.
All together you're getting a photo with a 108 megapixels of resolution making it the highest resolution consumer-based camera on the market.
Now, as you can see, I have two models in front of me.
This is the final retail version that you can pick out if you preorder from Indiegogo.
As you can see it's a much smaller model than the prototype, which is right here.
It's made of toughened plastic.
So, if you're bit of a klutz like me, you can drop it and it doesn't matter all too much.
So, this is the prototype, obviously a lot bigger and when you throw this one up into the air, it captures the panoramic image.
Once you have this image, what you can do is you see the unstitched version as you can see on the screen here.
This is the unstitched version before it goes to the service and it presents you with a stitched version.
Also what you can do with your 360-degree panorama is view it on a smartphone or tablet and interact with the image by pointing the tablet in the certain direction and you can see that particular portion of the image.
So, the Panono Panoramic Ball Camera will be available for $499 on Indiegogo coming very soon.
I'm Lexy Savvides for CNET and this has been the first look of the Panono Panoramic Ball Camera.
