I saw this a few weeks back, that's awesome to find out they used Shapeways to produce the shell! WSF is so strong, I bet they wouldn't need the bumpers on it if not for the electronics inside.

Mmm... Positioning evenly 36 cameras on a sphere could be a good application of the Truncated Sphere Dice... Perhaps those dice are not so useless... ;-)
Very interesting project, in any case...
What about printing those panoramic pictures onto a sphere in Full Color Sandstone? That could be really awesome.
