3D Panoramas

Recent advancements in camera and mounting technology create full panoramas of your environment. These are great for outdoor shots that you just can't seem to capture with a regular camera.

Check Mobile Orientation

Not all mobile devices and browsers correctly report the device orientation. According the the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Working Draft 1 from December 2011 "DeviceOrientation Event Specification" the orientation is given by three angles representing compass direction (α), tilt (β), and rotation (γ). The 0 values for these is with the device flat, screen up, pointed North.

3D Google Cardboard

In a previous post I showed how a scene could be displayed in a browser and viewed stereoscopicly with Google Cardboard. This post describes a more efficient means of creating the display. In both cases, the browser screen is split in half with slightly different viewpoints so the eyes/brain combination views the result with depth.
