36 mobile phone camera modules fitted in a ball, able to take simultaneous pics when in the air and build a 360deg panoramic scene for viewing on your pc.

The picture quality isn't what we expect from this day and age, although I presume there is tech in there for the ball to take the shots at the apex of its journey to reduce/remove blurriness, it's rather bulky for carrying around conveniently as a tourist, but it does represent a few minutes fun for kids IMO.
