McDonald’s Gigapixel FanCam
At the football game in Pittsburgh two weeks ago (the one in which the Steelers upended the Jets in order to make it to this weekend’s Superbowl) fans were treated to their own Gigapixel photography experience courtesy of McDonald’s. Photographed from the 50-yard-line, the 360-degree Gigapixel image lets viewers zoom in close to spot friends on sidelines and in the stands, and folks who were at the game can even tag themselves in the browser. Hopefully we’ll be treated to a similar shot this weekend, but if not, and even if you don’t know anybody in Pittsburgh (or if you’re a Jets fan) it can still be fun to zoom in and look around the stadium from a perspective we don’t often get to see.
