Full Screen 360 photo of QR Codes, use your mouse to spin the photo. This is great, it inclues two of my interests, artistic QR codes and 360 panoramic photography. The QR Codes are hand drawn by Papa Roux. The 360 degree photo by Jordon Updike is made with 360panorama by Occipital using a mobile phone. The iPhone version is only $0.99 and is very easy to use (I bought it after viewing this panorama.) This 360panorama software offers three types of projection, 360, Flat and Sterographic, you can view each one using the drop down menu in the panorama.
The first panorama is a 360 degree cylindrical panorama that is intended to be viewed as if curved around the inside of a cylinder.
Flat or planar panoramas are conventional photographs that are intended to be viewed without any perspective correction.
The Stereographic projection is a way of picturing the sphere on the plane, or the “Polar Panorama Effect.” These are called Planet panoramas since they look like small planets, check out Photojojo tutorial on how to make them.
Another type of panorama (my favorite) is the Spherical panorama which are typically represented in equirectangular format image files, which represent exactly 360 degrees on the horizontal axis and 180 degrees on the vertical. These images are intended to be viewed as if you are on the inside of a sphere or bubble. Check out the www.pixeet.com site for some great examples of these made using the iPhone. The application is free, the 180 degree fisheye lens is only $60.00 and it includes an iPhone case. The fisheye lens mounts to the case magnetically! You can also attach Wide Angle (perfect for iPhone 4 Real Estate Photography), Macro and Telephoto lenses to the Pixeet case.
