    think thats cool, try taking a picture of yourself in a mirror. Its freaky!!

    I’ve been using something similar to this for the past year or so on a little irobot create. Point the camera at the ornament and then do a little trig to get a panoramic view of the environment. It’s probably easier to use a cone though (the sphere reflection trig gets really complicated).

    I was considering this even before I saw the post today. We just made silver-plated ornaments in chemistry and I bet they would work perfect.
