So 360-degree panoramic photos aren’t exactly a new thing. A lot of people have attempted to come up with designs of gadgets that can take such shots with ease and convenience. Jonas Pfeil, Kristian Hildebrand, Carsten Gremzow, Bernd Bickel and Marc Alexa succeeded in doing so with their Panoramic Ball Cam prototype, but a commercial one has yet to be unveiled to the market–until now.
That said, the Tamaggo 360-imager is in a field of its own. It’s small and weighs in at just 7 ounces, but packs a punch as it can capture 14-megapixel images. The coolest thing about the 360-imager is its built-in panamorph technology that lets you select, zoom, and crop images on its 2-inch LCD touchscreen right after you take them.
The Tamaggo 360-imager connects to your PC via mini USB or to your phone via Bluetooth so you can share your photos easily as well. The 360 is said to be priced at $200 and will be showcased at the CES 2012.
Here’s the list of features of the Tamaggo 360-imager:
- 14MP sensor with wide dynamic range
- ImmerVision Enables panomorph 360ºoptics
- 2″ diagonal LCD touch screen
- Intuitive orientation sensor
- Solid state
- Mini USB and wireless (WiFi and Bluetooth)
- Weight: 7 oz (190g)
