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.

And how would that be different from most of my family photos?

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.

You won't be molesting any children? Oh hell, you probably will.

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.
