Default This is mind boggling!

Here is a link to a 600,000 x 300,000 pixel, 320-gigapixel photograph of Tokyo by Jeffrey Martin produced by stitching together roughly 8000 images (print it out a normal photographic resolution and it would measure 328 x 164 feet). You can see the entire city in 360 or zoom in and read license plates on cars. Both fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Spend some time panning around and zooming in and out and you'll see what I mean. Now if only my smart phone could do as well.

WoW!! Nice find!! For a minute, from the title, I thought someone was claiming copyright infringement on your saw.....


Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Oliver, if technology continues for another ten years as fast as it has for the past ten years, what you are talking about might be possible with your phone, we are moving very quickly in that direction and coming apart at the seams in other areas of society.

I was surprised when I read the title too. I didn't think there was anything that could boggle your mind. If I could read Japanese I could tell you who was buried in the cemetery.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
