New system makes any digital camera take multibillion-pixel shots from PhysOrg.com
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, in collaboration with scientists at NASA’s Ames Research Center, have built a low-cost robotic device that enables any digital camera to produce breathtaking gigapixel (billions of pixels) panoramas, called GigaPans.
Imagine a day when historians can walk around in pictures of settings that time has removed from reality. Imagine an ability to look at the smallest screw in that picture. The ability to make those photos seems to be upon us.
