I-Ball – A 360° Grenade-Launchable Camera
The I-Ball is a camera designed with new technology that will enable UK soldiers to toss it anywhere into the battlefield to gain insights into what awaits them before putting themselves in harm’s way. The I-Ball camera “…can be fired from a grenade launcher – or thrown into a room – giving troops vital information of who – or what – is on the ground or around the corner.”
The camera houses two sensors and fisheye lenses that capture image data of it’s surroundings, and a transmitter that sends the data back to a processor. the processor then maps out a real-time 360° view of what the camera is seeing.
