I have an amazing idea for an application for the n900.

An app which enables the n900 to take a 360 degree picture then gives the option to crop at 3200 x 480 and slices that image into 4.

oila u have ure own loopable desktop.

I can't wish to do this myself as i can't code anything to save my life!

Good look dev's!

And the 360 degree picture would be taken how? The camera only captures less than 180 deg, so you would need to snap at least 3 pictures, assemble them and then crop into 4 parts. Also, i doubt lots of people would be using that, so i don't know if it's worth the effort of writing such an app, compared to simply taking x pictures and pasting & cutting manually

Well yh the idea was you take more than one picture, similar to the panoramic options on all cameraphones, then get the app to crop and cut automatically

So basically a photostich application. Definitely a cool idea, especially if you can link the first image with the last. Problem would be how level you can keep the camera as you spin around.

Thats up to the person taking the picture really......
But in general it would be nothing perfect just something to make some desktops from pictures uve taken

Automatic panorama stitching can be done on a mobile phone, and it looks very impressive. See here:

We need someone (the original devs or someone from the Maemo community) to write a similar app for the N900!

My idea (at the Summit) was this:

1. Take first photo and it slides to the left, but leaves the right-most edge of the photo visible on the left side of the screen.
2. Line second photo up with first photo (live, on-camera) and take photo. This photo then slides over.
3. Etc.

Do this four times, or a thousand. Easy and wouldn't require (much) "stitching."

Nokia N86 has a wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens for panoramic pictures, with a panorama capture mode. While the N900 doesn't have a wide-angle lens, I think a panorama mode would be a possibility, since it's solely a software-based feature, just like editing pictures.
