Robot That Takes Panoramic PicturesCarnegie Mellon University announced a $300 robot designed to easily enable people to create super-high-resolution panoramic pictures–and a Web site to let anyone in the world dive into them.

The GigaPan robot, built by Charmed Labs, can accommodate most compact cameras and is designed to be relatively inexpensive, said Illah Nourbakhsh, a Carnegie Mellon associate professor of robotics. Images then are uploaded to the new GigaPan website. They also can be viewed through the Google Earth software.

You can view some sample photographs on GigaPan Web site.
