Perfect Panoramic Photos

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.
