Sony's ODO Twirl n' Take Kinetic Powered Camera

What happened to the ODO Twirl n’ Take? We first saw the wind up camera in 2007 when our friends over at Engadget posted the pics below. Then, today AOL’s Green Channel at Switched had more video from Engadget posted.

For those of you who haven’t seen this uber cool device, the still camera is powered by a rolling head that generates kinetic energy to power on the camera, which actually takes decent photos.  The futuristic looking  Sony camera comes with a “flower pot” docking station and is purely concept at this point, but it’s one that I would love to see on the store shelves soon.
