Target Tracking Camera means you'll never miss a fast action shot again

A team from the Ishikawa Oku Lab at the University of Tokyo built a dynamic target-tracking camera that follows the movement of a high-speed object to keep it in the center of the frame. The camera uses a pan and tilt mirrors to its advantage for this technology to work. At 1/1000th of a second, the mirrors move rapidly in order to process the fast object, leaving you with a stable image—and an eerie visul effect!

The lab thinks the camera will be of great use to sports broadcasters, helping them provide new and interesting viewpoints of games.
