Las Vegas, NV–Billed as the first picture-taking device that captures the environment surrounding the user and creates a navigable record that turns physical experiences into digital events, Tamaggo’s 360-Imager introduces integrated 360° technology to the consumer market.
The egg-shaped camera is ergonomically designed, fitting comfortably in the palm of a hand, and the company says it “accommodates technology that to date has been available only for sophisticated government and commercial applications.”
Led by Dr. James Ionson, a former Polaroid executive, the Canadian-based tech company chose the name Tamaggo, which was inspired by the Japanese word for “egg,” to represent not only the camera’s shape but also something new. The device enables users to capture high-resolution, navigable pictures with one click.
The Tamaggo 360-imager and accessories will be marketed internationally in Q2 2012. The device will be priced under $200. tamaggo.com
