We present the design of a spherical imaging system with the following properties: (i) A 4π field of view that enables it to “see” in all directions; (ii) a single center of projection to avoid parallax within the field of view; and (iii) a uniform spatial and angular resolution in order to achieve a uniform sampling of the field of view. Our design consists of a spherical (ball) lens encased within a spherical detector shell. The detector shell has a uniform distribution of sensing elements… CONTINUE READING
