One More Time, Toss This SatuGo Camera Ball to Take Pictures!

SatuGo Digital Camera Ball

SatuGO is a combination of a bouncing ball and a camera, and it aims to make it more fun to take pictures. Throw the SatuGO camera and it takes a picture where it hits a surface; or set the timer and take pictures from far up in the air. It also has a built-in flash.

SatuGO can be used almost anywhere. It is very rugged and can handle bumps, hits and naturally also water, say its designers Eschel Jacobsen and Mads Ny Larsen of Denmark. SatuGO is primarily thought as a fun alternative to normal cameras.

Throw it up into the air with a set timer and it captures whatever it sees while its shutter is open; with a longer shutter speed, you get some fun lines in your exposures. (The box graphics for Adobe Acrobat 8 used an image taken that way.)

When you’re through taking fun pictures, the SatuGo can also function as a webcam and mobile data storage.

Is it in the market now? No, they’re still looking for investors to fund the project and bring to commercial production. They have a website, if you’re interested.
