The Big One - Project Planet

Imagine projecting 360° panoramas onto a massive circular screen, so big that you can stand in the middle and view them. Just how big would this need to be. Enter Project Planet. In the Sziget Festival this year in Budapest there will be a screen 4m high and 55m long wrapped around the inside of a huge tent. Panoramic images from around the world are to be projected onto this screen. Each day during the festival images from a different continent will be shown. These images have been chosen for the beauty they reveal about the different places around the world.

Some of the selected images are also found on Panoramic Earth. These include:
It is possible that this fantastic exhibition will then itself go on a world tour after the Sziget Festival is over. So hopefully this massive screen will be coming to a city near you sometime soon.
