We can think of tons of great uses for the Sphericam, a recent Kickstarter project that absolutely killed on its funding goals, earning about 3.5 times its $10,000 target. The brainchild of Czech Republic native-Chicago transplant Jeffrey Martin, this creation allows you to shoot 360 degrees, all at the same time while using the LCD panel to check playback.

The Sphericam does what it does thanks to four fisheye lenses, each with a 170-degree viewing field. These are mounted inside a sphere, which sits atop the 4.3″ monitor. The moment you turn this thing on, it starts recording and has a maximum of 3 hours recording time before it needs another charge (recording capacity of up to 17 hours on a 32GB SD card). Now, which one of you are going to use this to shoot the first ever 360-degree movie?
