The last time we ran down the sidewalk while throwing a camera, it turned into a pile of dust. Inventor Steve Hollinger's looking to fix that with the Squito. Hollinger's latest patent for a throwable camera piggybacks onto the one he filed three years ago, bringing detailed usage and a functional prototype along for the ride. The description was vague and unwieldy before, but now the Squito is detailed as a "ball with camera and trajectory control for reconnaissance or recreation." It looks much better than the last panoramic ball camera we saw, too. The video after the break demos the test unit's dramatic possibilities, and we'd be lying if what we saw didn't excite us. When was the last time you watched a video with wireless infrared, kitty rescue and 3D mapping anyhow?
