Looks like a very interesting technology to use on a uav.

We've invented the world's first intelligent throwable camera, a ball capable of stabilized, full spherical 360° photography and video capture. Today, as this fledgling space begins to take flight, we're engineering state-of-the-art technology for the decade ahead. Simply put, cameras and sensors are going airborne.

That's a couple of years old, but they have a done a great job with the software.

The tracking and 3D are pretty sick. 

I didn't catch the price.

Wow, the uses for this thing are endless!  Amazing.

I hate to bring up the military thing but... soldiers, or police....  "Is there anybody in that building?" "Hang on, let me lob a camera through the window and we'll find out."  Awesome.

Now that's sweet! Would be even sweeter if it were the size of a golf or tennis ball (give it a few years).  Definitely on my must have list.

Yeah, we have this thing called the recon scout "Throwbot."  Just like every other bit of technology we get here, doesn't work in sand.

Mirrors are not just for makeup ;-)

The first video reminds me a little of the movie Prometheus, where they have the floating mapping drone things.

B Nevins...sand can do in most technology pretty effectively.

helistorm, that was the first thing i thought about as well.. 
To put a camera system + the software like this on something that flies would be great.
No gimbal needs, full 360' vid, immersive fpv ..
Object tracking and follow me
