Canada's Tamaggo Inc. previewed an egg-shaped photographic device at this year's CES that's claimed to capture navigable high resolution 360-degree panoramas of its surroundings with a single click. Rather than stitch together lots of different photos taken one after the other in quick succession, the Tamaggo 360-Imager would appear to do for photography what lens attachments like the GoPano micro did for iPhone video. 
 The palm-sized (3.62 x 2.19 x 2.4-inch, 92 x 55.8 x 61.1 mm) 2012 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards honoree is topped by a 360-degree zero to infinity lens and features a 14 megapixel sensor. There's a 2-inch LCD touch screen on the bottom and a huge button on the side for thumb operation (although it also has its own stand for delayed triggering using a timer function). The 360-Imager is powered by a Lithium Polymer battery that's charged via a mini-USB port - which also caters for physical connection to a computer, tablet or smartphone - and has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. The captured Tamaggraph image can then be saved to and viewed on a digital device (such as a tablet) or shared online via social networking platforms, with users able to move around the scene in a similar way to those nifty virtual museum tours often seen online. A section of the image can also be cropped and sent to a printer. The Tamaggo 360-Imager is expected to cost under US$200. [Source]
