In essence, two digital photographs are taken using a fisheye lens and are then stitched together to form a sphere. The end result gives the impression that you are standing inside the sphere - moving the cursor lets you look all around; up or down, in front or behind - giving a very real feeling of actually being there.
NCE regular photographer David Jones has already taken several Ipix, including views at the Millennium Wheel and Channel Tunnel Rail Link. Several locations in Manchester are next on the list, with a trip to Scotland to follow soon after. Suggestions are always welcome.
