From TrustedReviews:

We’ve seen concept cars of the future and even planes of the future, and now Nikon has given us a glimpse at what it thinks will be the future of digital cameras.

At a science and industry exhibition in France, entitled Hello Demain (or Hello Tomorrow), Nikon unveiled four concept designs which could be the future of photography – then again we may never see them appear again. Considering the gap between the unveiling of the first Nikon digital camera at Photokina at 1986 and its appearance on store shelves 13 years later as the D1, we may have to wait some time to see these cameras in our homes. The most striking new design is something called the Multi-ball (see above), which is a transparent sphere containing multiple lenses. Nikon says it can capture not only the images its sees but also the "atmosphere of a scene." Nice.
