Not too long ago, cameras seemed to be integrated into nearly everything — with some folks wondering when toasters or dishwashers would come with built-in cameras. Thankfully, though, the upcoming “internet of things” doesn’t seem to want to take photos of everything (yet). We’ve covered a few new-fangled cameras before, so here are just a few other camera systems that might get popular soon.
- A German-based company called The Marmalade is using robots to capture some cool high speed video. Robots as camera operators are becoming more and more common with companies like Bot&Dolly and others making some high-profile movie scenes. [url]
- KMel Robotics creates some neat quadcopters that can be used for aerial photography. Similar quadcopters have been used for recording events like weddings — with some technical glitches that might need to be edited out of the final cut. [url]
- A throwable panoramic ball camera can take 360° photos when it gets to the apex of its trajectory. This camera’s indiegogo campaign is over, but you can still pre-order (and get the discount) at panono.com. [url]
