In theory, at least, we already knew that the Gigapan Imager was capable of some amazing things. This, friends, is proof. David Bergman strapped the device and his Canon G10 onto a rail at Barack Obama's inauguration and snapped 220 images. After giving his MacBook Pro 6.5 hours to compile a two gigabyte image, he hosted it up on his website for people to zoom around on. We'll caution you -- you can easy kill a few hours checking out faces and such if you end up visiting the read link, but it's totally worth it.

Maybew we can get a $300 copiers to make a copy of Obama’s Hawaiian Birth Certificate.

My guess is HI would give us a COLB listing Mombassa as his brithplace.

So what’s the big deal? It doesn’t look like anything that Windows Live photo couldn’t do.

Big deal.

Here's the President of the United States rendered in 1240 cupcakes.

Get back to me when you can beat that!

I would add one thing: The Canon G10 is an outstanding digital camera. It delivers incredible capabilities at a modest price.

No one who buys one and takes the time to learn to use it is going to be disappointed.

Hint: This will still be true 6-12 months from now.

Change? The majority of the people in the front are white and in the back, black. Oh, wait, they’re only 15% of the population, makes sense now.

That is stunning in its clarity, wow.

Oh and yes, I wasted at least a good half hour looking for familiar faces in the crowd.

Don’t like Obama, of course, but that is a pretty cool image.
