Over the years we have featured a number of throwable cameras which have been developed to capture extraordinary and very unique lines of sight not available whilst using a hand-held camera.
Now US-based inventor Steve Hollinger has been granted a second US patent for his Squito throwable ball camera which has been under development for some time. Check out the video after the jump to learn more about the very unique Squinto throwable ball camera.
The Squito camera is a first generation prototype ball camera which has been designed to be thrown into the air to capture photographs and is equipped with 3 cameras an inertial measurement unit (IMU), a microcontroller and image processor.
“The Squito throwable camera innovations are accelerating with advancements in sensor and imaging microelectronics,” stated Hollinger. “And with the advent of low-cost, high-speed cameras for outdoor recreation, an affordable throwable camera is finally within reach.”
Squito is now being developed by Steve Hollinger to capture slow-motion, full-spherical video of subjects visible from a bird’s-eye view along the trajectory.
