Gigapan


Late last summer Jeremy began a new job at CREATE lab, within the robotics institute at Carnegie Mellon University.  He's officially the Artist in Residence and works on some exciting projects (artists and roboticists make a good team).  One especially interesting project that the lab has going is the Gigapan, a gigapixel camera.  You read that correctly...GIGApixel!  Here is the most recent Gigapan from Tahrir Square in Cairo.  All I can say is incredible. 

Here's how it works:
Click on the image within the Gigapan browser (go here first).
Then, click on one of the thumbnails below the image and watch amazing happen.
Click on "view all" on the left hand side to zoom back out. 
Click on another thumbnail and watch amazing happen all over again.

Enjoy!
