FIVE GOLD GIFTS… #4 – Panono Panoramic Ball Camera

panonoChristmas is the best time of year for those who are normally too sensible to throw away their money on cheap electrical gadgets.

The Panono Panoramic Ball Camera is neither a gimmick, nor is it cheap or throwaway… even if it can be thrown and when it is, takes panoramic images using 36 embedded camera modules at various angles. This produces a 360° spherical spectrum, composed of 36 joined pictures.

The camera costs $549, a ‘premium’ Christmas present, not one for the stocking unless you happen to be in the higher echelons of our unbalanced capitalist society. But if you have the budget and you like unusual pictures, this is one for YOU.
