Stop whatever you’re doing and grab the Occipital’s 360 Panorama app for your Android smartphone (presuming you own a compatible, Gingerbread-powered smartphone). Yeah I know the Ice Cream Sandwich will bring this capability built-in, but I’m sure it won’t work the way 360 Panorama does its job. Occipital relied heavily on OpenGL hardware-accelerated graphics to make the magic happen. Heck their app will work even without a gyroscope which seemingly is impossible since accelerometers alone cannot track rotation — they are simulating a gyroscope using their own camera-based motion tracking algorithms. Impressive!
Now the question is whether you think 360 Panorama is worth a buck (99 cents actually). I’m confident it is worth every penny, especially if you’re travelling somewhere and want to bring home the memories in a way that wasn’t possible before (at least with an Android smartphone)… So what are you waiting for – hit the link below and take it from there. 😉
