Introducing 360 Panorama

Pearl Street Mall, Boulder, Colorado

Since the sale of RedLaser to eBay, people have been asking what’s next for Occipital. While RedLaser has been in the limelight, the team has been hard at work on our next-generation computer vision application.

Today we’ve launched 360 Panorama (app store: $2.99): realtime panorama creation for your iPhone 4 or 3GS. Gone is the need to stitch together a series of still photographs. With 360, simply pan your phone in any direction and watch as our computer vision system builds a panorama in realtime. Capturing a panorama on your phone has never been easier.

360 Panorama is our first major release since RedLaser, and we’ve surmounted many challenges to make it happen. We’re proud to say there’s simply no other app like it.

Here’s a short video preview of 360 Panorama in action:

Video updated 12/14/10 to feature v 3.0!

 

Tech Note: The first release of 360 Panorama is optimized to make panorama capture extremely fast and easy so that you can share panoramas very rapidly. As we improve the precision of generated panoramas, we’ll also add options for higher resolution outputs. Current resolution of a 360 degree panorama is 2048 4096 pixels wide (which is still wider than most monitors).

    Amazing work guys! Downloaded it and love the smoothness and simplicity of operation. You continue to make impressive stuff. To be a geek for a second, if you could keep the real-time, "low res" stitching but add on an (optional?) high-res post-processing it would be awesome, and useful! Next, I expect the inverse "walk around" version/option where you can do a 360 around an object. :)

    Ok, just finished downloading and it seems strange though, or should I just tweak it a bit.

    In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when someone wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the Internet and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions.

    Does this produce a cylindrical, or a spherical (equirectangular) panorama? Thanks.

    Does this app actually stitch together more than 2 images. I can't seem to get it to. When I take the second shot it immediately stitches it to the first, and then I can't modify the image further.

Its definitely an important issue that not enough people are talking about and I’m glad that I got the chance to see all the angles.
