The Return Of The UFO Flotilla, Something Strange This Way Comes…

UFO Flotilla or fleets have become a more frequently occurring phenomenon recently. With major sightings around the world in the last six months you might get the impression someone is showing off their new toys.

Flotilla usually consist of groups of small luminous spheres or orbs, that often number in the hundreds, drifting through the sky silently. Sometimes accompanied by disc shaped UFO’s the Flotilla move in synchronised patterns, perhaps a super high-tech take on the UAV, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle. Often a shocking sight to behold the first time you are introduced, hundreds of strange craft moving in unison.

Selected for your viewing pleasure are three of the most shocking Flotilla videos currently available. NASA footage of a fleet re-entering the atmosphere along with a most unusual small fleet of orbs seen over Fukushima and the video that started it all, Guadalajara Mexico, 2004.

Jonas Pfeil’s Spherical Panoramic Camera Ball…

As a species creativity has to be one of our greatest strengths, granted some ideas and inventions can come across a little whacky and strange, but with perseverance they often blossom into excellent gadgets. One such idea is the Spherical Panoramic Camera Ball, created by Jonas Pfeil. The ball is tossed into the air where it proceeds to snap a full 360 degree panoramic image of the surrounding scene. The images produced are an amazing snapshot of the moment, with every direction able to be explored. Unexpected details appear in every corner, even capturing the scene behind you that was till then unseen.

A built in accelerometer is able to calculate the launch speed of the ball, that is in turn used to calculate the maximum height and time to maximum height. This is then used to time the shot for that zero g moment when the camera ball is stationary. At that moment the 36 fixed-focus 2 megapixel mobile phone camera modules fire off simultaneously. The camera’s internal 8bit Risc processor then stitches them together into a panoramic picture of the scene. Depending on the surroundings the Camera Ball will capture detail out to a few hundred meters in each direction.
