Interactive view of Princess Diana’s Tiara

Posted by ryanjackson on Feb 4, 2013 in 360 Panoramas, photos |

To help promote the Princess Diana exhibit going on at West Edmonton Mall , Lucas Timmons and I photographed her Tiara and made an interactive 360-degree gallery.

I shot 36 pictures straight on and 36 pictures at a 45-degree angle using a motorized turntable.

Lucas then put the images together into an interactive spinning player using the very cool and lighweight jQuery Reel.

I used a spinning serving tray from Ikea and covered it in black tape. I then used a small continuous servo motor http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=22&product_id=3202_0 connected to a Phidget server controller http://www.phidgets.com/products.php?category=11&product_id=1061_1 and my laptop. I timed the servo so it would turn the table 10-degrees, wait 5-seconds for me to take a picture , turn 10-degrees, wait 5-seconds for me to take a picture, etc. for 360-degrees.

The little tire is from an old Meccano set.
