You are at a concert of your favourite band and you’re surely not the tallest person ever lived. Taking panoramic pictures of both the thousands of crowd and the stage -where your favourite singer is giving the performance of a lifetime, is something more than challenging. The end.

The Panono Camera changes everything you knew about taking panoramic pictures. With this ball shaped camera, you now have the possibility of capturing at any moment anything happening around you in any direction at the same time. All you have to do is toss the ball shaped camera in the air and everything happens automatically.

An accelerometer inside the camera measures the launch acceleration to calculate when the camera reaches the highest point after you toss it at the time it moves the least in order to take the perfect photo.  At that point, 36 cameras are triggered to capture the moment, 360° X 360° of it. A panoramic picture including everything surrounding you.

I tossed and I took the pictures I wanted.. Now what?

With the Panono app, you get to see the images you captured right away. You move your phone up, down, right or left in the same way you would use Google Street View. You view the images as if you are in the picture. A photo which is more live than ever at an astonishing detail of 108 megapixels.
