      Hello,

      I have a challenge for all of you.
      Several times was discussed on this list the way to get us off the
      virtual screen into the real world.
      One way to do this is to build life size cubes and print the inside
      panels with the cubic projections that we use to make cubic QTVR files
      (although with more resolution) so that a person could walk in and feel
      like it was there.

      Well, yesterday was talking about this with the owner of an important
      Art Gallery here in Portugal, and he is interested in making a big show
      using this concept.

      He has the space needed and will finance the building of the boxes, I
      happen to own a Large Format Print Center here in Portugal and I can
      print the whole thing as big as needed, all together we have the
      creative drive needed to make this a success.

      This is not like printing equirectangular images that most people can't
      figure out what it is, this is about capture some point of view
      somewhere around the world and displaying it 180x360º elsewhere
      retaining the same perspective, a truly immersive feeling.

      The question is, can this be done?

      I don't know if it will work out, I only promise I will try to make it work.

      We have to decide how to make this cubes.

      We have to decide a theme for it.

      We have to decide some technical aspects like resolution and the file
      size of the cubes.

      Can we make this into art objects?

      Let's discuss this and if more people then me are interested in this
      please come out and say it.

        Yes, just split the square zenith image into four triangles and
        stretch them to match the shape of the triangle of your pyramid
        sides. This isn't exactly correct, but it will be near enough as
        so long as your pyramid is shallow.
