There is Seattle Technology, then Seattle Technology, and then there is, um, even higher Seattle Technology. The Space Needle is demonstrating the conditions needed to make the latter version.
On Thursday, a representative of Needle shared a photo of a brave worker installing a new panoramic camera on the spire of Seattle’s most iconic building last week. The worker, who did not want to be named, put on a seat belt and climbed to the tip of the needle, completing the job at a height of 605 feet, and even installed a new lightning rod there.
Upgraded version Panoramic camera Created by a production and design company based in Kent, Washington Brett, And its lens quality is higher than its predecessor that debuted on Needle on January 1, 2015. Panocam video sources will now be available 24 hours a day, providing a clear 360-degree view at night for the first time.
GeekWire reported on the digital experience provided by PanoCam in a report in 2018, detailing some of the best shots taken with a rotating webcam. Although the Needle itself is the subject of a large number of city photos, the panoramic camera provides a continuous view that allows visitors to see what the building’s visitors might see.
Needle calls it “the most advanced webcam in the world” and takes images every 10 minutes.it Take a single image of up to 66 million pixels, and these images will be automatically stitched together to form a complete panoramic view.
In January 2018, a Google engineer used images taken by PanoCam to create a 4-minute time-lapse video that showed Seattle’s rapid rise during the three-year period.
With the collapse of old buildings and the emergence of new buildings, this video is almost a cartoonish representation of Seattle’s massive growth at the time, especially in the city core and the South Lake Union neighborhood, where Amazon, Facebook, and Google opened stores.
Three years later, the city continues to develop and change, and PanoCam will continue to click.
