ProjectorFish-Eye LensSpherical displaycovered by tracing paper
We cut a tracing paperWe put paper on two plastic hemispheres andmerge them.
We tested with a projection light, and it was going well!!
We used two ﬁsh-eye lenses for smart phone.Two stacked with clips were set on a tripod.
The moment when we tried to stand the sphere in a right way...
We wrote programs for transforming the equidistant cylindrical map to the sphericalprojection map.https://github.com/dengurix2/PersonalCosmos
Our tool can transform images only by Drag & Drop.
Transformed data was well suited for our display!
