Forget those measly megapixel images your digital camera takes. The Gigapan robotic camera mount–the product of a partnership between NASA, Google, Carnegie Mellon University, and Charmed Labs of Austin, TX–lets you precisely pan and tilt your camera so that photos can be digitally stitched together into seamless gigapixel panoramas. At Gigapan.org and in Google Earth, you can explore hundreds of panoramas uploaded by participants in the Gigapan product trial.
