GigaPan Creates Incredible Panoramas


Carnegie Mellon University Researchers have come up with the GigaPan, a gadget that can capture over 1 billion high-res pixels. You simply attach it to your digital camera and tripod and it automatically clicks the shutter with a robotic finger to create overlapping images. The result is a very kewl panorama of up to 90 minutes. CMU is hoping to release the GigaPan later this year for a price of $150.00 - $300.00. Check out the results on gigapan.org.
