Gigapan is a collaborative project of Google, Carnegie Mellon University and NASA Ames Intelligent Systems Division's Robotics Group. It is a robotic platform that attaches to a digital camera and some computer software. The robotic platform allows a user to take a photograph, then it will re-aim the camera with great precision, to take another photograph. After taking many photos, the software stitches all the pictures into a gigapixel image.

Basically just a massive high res picture like this

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

It doesnt look real.

but havnt they been doing this sort of thing for years? except now its near perfect quality.

EDIT: after looking at the first example you gave i thought they were taking pictures of like a 180 degree angle. but now i realise its 100's of pictures put together like a jigsaw, is it not?

The butterfly has a shadow when the building doesnt have a shadow, there is a coast guard helicopter flying randomly, whats up with the amount of people on the bridge but then a lack of people in the city?

It's one of those amphibious tour car/boats that they drive tourists around the city in and then take them for a boat ride in the bay or something.

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

that butterfly on the ledge is photoshopped in, zoom right in, everything else is blurred and there's a watermark on it.
