Designers Looking To Roll Out Bouncing Ball Camera

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Two Danish designers may soon roll out a camera that literally bounces off the walls.

It’s called SatuGO, which stands for See, Aim, Throw, captUre & GO, and co-creator Mads Ny Larsen says the rubber- coated ball camera that takes pictures on impact or through a timer is currently in the concept stage.

Larsen and his design partner, Eschel Jacobsen, want to see their bouncy product come to life, but first they’re trying to prove to investors that SatuGO would be a hit by tracking interest on their website,

SatuGo seems to be perfect for a kinetic genre of photography called “Camera Toss” and Larsen thinks people would have more fun taking pictures in general because, “Everybody loves throwing balls and playing with them.”

Although they haven’t made a SatuGO prototype yet, Larsen says with the duo’s specifications, “We’re sure it can work...It’s like a mobile camera phone. You can throw them onto the ground and they’ll still work.”
