Pwaang-bokka, pwaang-pwaang…

Feels like a bit of slap bass would be an appropriate sound to a gnarled 360º projection like this. So 360º photography is made by recording the entire horizontal visible 360º and the vertical 180º – that way all that can be seen is recorded. This is usually render then as an equi-rectangular 360º x 180º still image. Various online javascript trickery then can make this into a Google Streeview or otherwise experience.

But using some rudimentary mathematics, geospatial bending creativity and beautifully programmed plugins it’s possible to reshape space and create alternate views, and make weird looking stuff that’s a lot of fun for social media and slap-bass ditties.
