Ricoh has just unveiled world’s first omnidirectional camera that you can see in the picture above. As you have noticed that the Ricoh’s 360° camera is equipped with two fish-eye cameras each of which is capable of taking 180° panoramic photo. The camera then combines both the images and then sends it via WiFi to a host device which can be a computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. The 360° image can be seen by the users in any way he or she prefers. A quick demo of the end result in the video below.

The Ricoh’s 360° Omnidirectional camera is a sort of test device to know how the consumers react to such a unique way to taking photos on the go. The company also states that if they find a log of people showing interest in the 360° camera then they might mass produce it for the consumers in near future.
