Sharing Photospheres

Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) arrived in November 2012 with a new feature (among others) called Photosphere, which is a panoramic photo that can go vertical in addition to horizontal.  It’s not a perfect 360 degree view, as there are holes at the top and bottom of the photo (zenith and nadir, if you want to sound fancy), meaning directly overhead and at your feet.  I can’t embed javascript code into my free wordpress blog, so I’ll post a reminder here and redirect you to my resurrected Picasa blog. You might need to update your browser to view them.  Also, they are not perfect – often I am taking these photos around lots of people, and the nature of photostitching means that parts of objects and people will appear, disappear, or show up in more than one place.
