360 Degree Movie Panorama

This panorama is a movie panorama. Wait for the whole movie to download first, then press play. As the mobilsed camera moves down the street you can swing the panorama around 360 degrees either to the left or to the right (by holding the mouse down and moving the mouse left or right). As the camera moves down the street you can see on the adjacent map a large red dot on top of the street marked heavily in red as to where the camera is in relation to the geographical location. Amazing what a little ingenuity can achieve according to Peter Murphy the camera is actually facing up towards the sky but it is focusing on a parabolic mirror. The actual stitching of the captured footage apparently works via some kind of miraculous software. Here is a technical explanation of shooting a panorama with a mirror.
