This is a very quick, easy, virtually free (if you already have an ipod) Instructable on how to make your own 360 panorama views for showing off for your friends. The latest few generations of iPods all have a photo viewing feature nowadays, so you'll be collecting and showing 360 views or Spaces in no time.
Step 1: Photograph Your Panorama
Perfect accuracy and spacing while photographing is not required for it to look good, but the closer your surroundings are to you, the more precise you should be in your intervals between photographs. Try to turn about 30 degrees on the spot between each photo, so there is large amount of overlap and continuity when scrolling on the iPod.
Next time your somewhere and you really want to capture to essence of the moment, take a 'space', and add it to your collection on your iPod. This is a great, fairly memory friendly
way of cataloging your travels.
No photo shop or illustrator is needed to make 'spaces', although it can only be viewed this way on your IPod.
Try downloading the photos linked to this Instructable to see how the effect looks if your don't have a chance to take your own.
Step 2: Upload Your Pics
To sync your spaces, make a folder somewhere on your machine. Make a separate sub-folder within this folder for each space, naming it appropriately.
Check the option 'Sync photos from' and browse for your folder.
Step 3: How to Use
Now you've got your all your 3D Spaces in your pocket! Theres plenty of room for all the cool places you've been, like great concerts, vacations, parties, nature, even sets made out of toys.
I'll be posting my Spaces on Instructables and/or Flickr for download.
