To watch the photos simple connect the Satugo to you USB port and transfer the photos to you computer.

“Imagine combining your love for bouncing balls and your obsession for taking pictures into one, now it has a name SatuGO. Simply Throw SatuGO into the motive to catch the moment, where it hits you get a picture, or take air photos by activating the timer before throwing the SatuGO. Other than being a camera SatuGO can act as a mobile storage facility for your personal data and function as a webcam. Help us realize this product by joining the SatuGO mailing list and be one of the first to be offered a SatuGO! chances for realization increases with the amount of people joining the list. “


We are two designers Eschel Jacobsen Industrial designer and Mads Ny Larsen Interactive media designer trying to realize this brainchild, by begging people to enter the SatuGO site herby being part of the birth of this radically new gadget, and at the same time be one of the first to be offered one when it goes into production.
