South Korean artists Shin Seung Back and Kim Yung Hun, together with costume designer Jehee Sheen, have created a jacket embedded with around 50 cameras which can be used to capture a 360-degree picture of the wearer’s environment. At the touch of a button, the pictures are taken, stitched together into a panorama and then uploaded to the web. Known as the “Aposematic Jacket”, this is just an art project at the moment! You can visit the artists’ blog to see more photographs of the jacket.
