    Researchers at the Technische Universität in Berlin have developed a multi-sensor throwable camera that's able to snap a single 360 degree panoramic photo while in the air. You throw it up, and when it reaches its peak level, all of its 36 2-megapixel cell phone cameras go odd, creating a panoramic image.

    So every picture you take includes you, looking silly with your hands in a vertical tossing motion and your mouth agape.

    I really hope someone tries to do something similar to that second shot on the edge of the cliff and can't catch the camera.

    If you can pull that off in a few hands-free seconds, I say you don't have to go to jail. That's talent.

    I guarantee Fox is somehow trying to get MLB to let them use one of those balls in the world series. We're stuck with friction cam when there's a friggin camera ball out there.
