Gear  |  Tech


Google has developed the Trekker, a backpack panoramic camera system that can be carried by one person - to traverse the Grand Canyon and capture 360-degree images. Between the pack, the sensors and the camera systems, the Trekker weighs in at 40 pounds. The Trekker is operator controlled by an Android app and automatically gathers photos as he walks. The camera module on top of the pack looks a bit like a soccer ball and contains fifteen different lenses.
