Olympus develops 360-degree HD camera

This cool camera from Olympus not only shoots in HD, but it shoots a full 360 degrees of HD. Looking completely unlike any camcorder you'd find on the shelves of your local Best Buy, it gets a nice 1080i feed from all around it.

Sure, it wasn't designed for consumer uses, and it'd probably be pretty awkward to try to bring with you on your next family vacation, but it's pretty awesome. It's designed to be used for things like security cameras and the like, but I'm sure more creative uses will be thought up soon enough.
