The team at bubl Technology have set out to make Google Streetview technology available for everyone. The camera is roughly the size of a small baseball and is capable of capturing 100% of the spherical range through panoramic photos and videos. While this technology is in itself not revolutionary, it wouldn't have the same opportunity without Bubl's proprietary software that enables real-time image stitching, giving the perception of a virtual world that you can explore inside your viewing device.
At the Museum, we're very excited about the potential of this technology for a number of uses but mainly offering online visitors an immersive virtual visit of the museum, especially for people who are physically unable to visit the Museum. Below are a few shots and you can see more on Bubl's website: http://www.bublcam.com/
