Android Quick App: Robot View

Talk about groundbreaking.  This might be the coolest-time-wasting app on the planet and it’s only in beta form.  Actually it’s not even time-wasting…the more and more I think about how amazing this app is, I keep coming up with other great uses.  So what is it?

Robot View allows you to take 3d panoramic pictures with your Droid, upload them, and then share them with the world.  Once uploaded, then run off of Google’s O3D API and allow you to cruise around rooms, scenes, or any place you or your friends are hanging out.

And my mind is blown.  Free people!

To check out the app in action, head over to the dev’s site.

Cheers Anthony!  Fantastic find!

    I've have had this app for a while now and it is fun to mess around wit. I have some tips for first time users for I wish someone would have told me this tip initially.When you take the pictures it is a good idea to use some kind of tripod or make sure the phone is in the same place every time you take a picture. If not you will have a hard time lining up the pictures to make a complete 360 view. Other than that it is a good idea too have on the gps as well.

    I don't see the apk on the website and it isn't in the market, am i missing something?

      Reset marketplace and it was, ready to try this bad boy out!

      It's in the market for me… Titled as “Robot View Beta”… Are you using a Droid to go to the market (it may require 2.1 if you're not on it)…? Grab the Barcode Scan app and just scan the QR code that he gave (it should take you right to it in the market)…

    This looks like it will be insane in the future when its polished. It does a pretty good job as is.

    I can see some real word applications where this would be just plain awesome for the average person like selling a house or car. people could check out the interior to see if they like it. will be installing as soon as i untether.

    They need a rename option (so you can rename the room). And I'm not sure I like the menu interface (Where you “select” the room, then go on). Let me click the room like other Android apps. But MAN, this thing is awesome! I showed it to a friend (I made a map of my desk at my office), and he asked if that was even possible (he didn't believe that my phone did that. So I did his office)…

    It's so easy too! I can't wait for the full version!

      Definitely excited for a full version. Or for some big company to buy them out and make this thing polished. Very cool stuff.
