Just wait until we are able to get ocular implants that can do this and more.

Yeah, your mind just said "Woah"

This is just amazing. Thanks for the info. The military has probably had something like this for half a decade.

Maybe its already been said but this is actually kind of ominous... why?
Well consumer technology is ALWAYS leaps and bounds behind military tech... meaning they can probably resolve pictures with a FAR greater pixel count.

Imagine a 100 Peta-pixel camera.

I have not seen this posted yet in this thread, but looking more into this, the image was made up of 9750 images stitched together. Not unlike what “satellite” maps do.

I found some information at this site, though it is still pretty cool.

About time, it's not entirely new, just public eye new.
This tech has been around since the 80's, keeping tabs on warfare situations.

But for unmanned missions to mars or other worlds, this would serve great. Find a good landing zone, or other stuff.

I don't care about skyspysats more interested in the future of Kepler-like spacecraft, get a close shot of a earth like world twenty lightyears away. That would be something amazing.

But this is a mild millstone for technology, another species could be far ahead of us playing a spy game for earth worlds

Yeah every one is saying how this technology should be used everywhere but this is just thousands of pictures mashed together nothing ground break here you just need a powerful pc and the software.




The stitching was made using Autopano Giga 2.5 beta. 9750 images were stitched together and some of them were processed with the new Neutralhazer® plug-in included in Autopano Giga 2.5. Neutralhazer® removes the haze from landscape panoramas by analyzing each pixel of the image.

The stitching was processed on a 6-core Xeon computer embarking 40Gb of RAM and an 8-Tb hard drive.
Autopano Giga 2.5 loaded the 9750 images in 1.5 hours. The saving of the project file took 10 hours and the rendering last 100 hours.

When's the 111 terapixel image coming out? Satellite view?


Edit; Street artists Nose and Tomato should be proud!

Yea it's very impressive! I hope they integrate it into H.D.T.V.s. It would be cool to see this in space exploration applications as well.

Right, the tech just doesn't translate to space imagery, its simply a designed multi lens camera with a software driven compilation process. They already do that with planet mapping camera, the problem is the cameras are 100's of miles away not 'in town'. Land this method of Mars you get a very clear image of a very tiny area. The Mars rovers really only travel about 12 miles in their usable lifetime.
