Update on the Nano GigaPan Project
The Nano GigaPan project is continuing full steam ahead in its mission to change the way we see. We recently submitted a proposal for a NASA innovation grant, this money would help us develop the Nano GigaPan hardware to make it convenient for other institutions to capture these types of images (we will know if we received the grant June 30th). Sharing this technology is one of our main goals, regardless of whether or not we receive the grant. So far the project has focused on taking interesting, or scientifically useful images, but now we will move on to develop the Nano GigaPan to work on other imaging tools. We are already collaborating with scientists from NASA Ames, the Stanford Neurology department, and the California Academy of Sciences to meet our goal of allowing other institutions to utilize this technology.
