Dan's Unrequested Panorama Stitching Service

I don't know about you, but the obvious question that popped into my mind when I discovered that there's "A 360 degree view in 71 photos of Will Self's writing room" on Self's site was "what'll happen if you feed those photos into panorama stitching software?"

Lots of the images don't actually match up, but Autostitch knows to discard the puzzle pieces that don't fit. The result also has quite a few dreamy spots in it, like any close-range indoor hand-held panorama. But, y'know, that's just a bit cubist, innit?

It's still not half bad, if you ask me.

    It kinds of looks as though it should be a promotional still from the Fight Club DVD.

    Came across that on Kottke.org and you're right, that's EXACTLY what I thought, too. Of course I was thwarted by the imagined tedium of saving out all the images, but I'm glad SOMEONE did it!

    I wonder what sort of Post-it's he buys?

    A strong wind through that room, or the cheap ones that fall off after a few days, would probably set him back years...
