Occipital has discovered that Apple's MobileSafari browser has gyroscope support for the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G on iOS 4.2. Their popular 360 Panorama photo application now takes advantage of the feature, reports TNW.
After you capture a panorama with the 360 Panorama app, one can upload the picture, getting the URL to view the experience in Safari Mobile. In essence, the raw jpeg image files are hosted on either TwitPic or yFrog after a user uploads a panorama through 360 Panorama.
After launching the URL in Safari Mobile, one will see "Gyro ON" and simply by moving your phone in any direction, you can have a complete panoramic experience using the photo you've captured. Moreover, experiences can be viewed on TwitPic, or the location of the experience using Apple's "Maps" app.
According to BGR, "It’s ridiculously impressive, and by using the gryoscope and a panorama image, you can deliver an augmented reality type of experience right in the Web browser itself."
