Panorama Sticher by Microsoft

I know that most are using photosynth to create as it was shown in class. Microsoft has a full proper sticher that can create Panos out of huge collection of image. Currently I am generating high resolution Panos using 200 images and just wanted to share with everyone as it can aid in their future projects in this class.

Below is a high resolution panorama of tech square.

AR Experience Report: 1 Millionth Tower

This Highrise project is not really AR or MR as we have been discussing in class, but is instead an interactive video project that mixes hand drawn “augmentations” with video and panoramic imagery.  However, I’m posting it because it is evocative to me of the kind of AR experience I would like to create.  Imagine that, through careful use of panoramic imagery or augmented overlays that only display if you are in the right location, you create a narrative that leads you through a space using this aesthetic, telling the story of how it is, was or could be.

What is compelling about this video project is how they achieve an aesthetic that tells a story, using a mix of simple 3D graphics, 2D imagery and video.
