  • I can see a 36 armed spherical multicopter with a camera at the tip of each arm, isolated from vibrations.  It's bit FPV, it will be call OPV. (Omni-Person-View)

  • Here's a SITE where you can post your own photos and build a spherical panorama.  I did a little experimenting and it's pretty easy and petty neat.

  • Not far at all if you do not need it in real time.


  • A point cloud from this would be extremely cool. Does this mean we can slap some cameras on a copter, fly around a bit, and then have a real 3d environment to navigate in? How far away are we in expense and processing power for this kind of magic?

  • sweet is there any way to trigger it without throwing it i wonder it would be awesome on any aircraft and this idea would be great for video also. oh my, so many possibilities. where do i get one

    Yep just what I was thinking

  • Nice, I bet structure from motion could be used to create a point cloud.  

  • Great idea Gary, I love it.

  • Call me immature, but I enjoyed the follow-on Youtube clip as well...

  • Cool gadget and good idea!
