Humans can see an impressive 120-degree arc, but we're not capable of focusing on all of that vision at once.

When 360 Panorama hit the iPhone last year, we liked being able to spin in a circle and have the phone create a panorama in real-time. Now Android users can do the same, thanks to some impressive trickery.
It's been 66 long years since the US leveled Hiroshima and Nagasaki with atomic bombs. The bombs, which killed over 200,000 people, left both cities in ruins. This is what the aftermath looked like in 360 degrees.
Who wants to actually travel to the Vatican to see Michelangelo's masterpiece? And physically crane their neck to look at its spectacular ceiling?
