Olympic Opening Ceremonies will be Captured in 20-Gigapixel Photo

Design News 07.27.12

If you're one of the lucky few to have tickets to the opening ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics, remember to check for spinach in your teeth. Getty Images will take a 20-gigapixel shot of the entire stadium that will allow for zoom and tagging yourself. Normally something so large would take days to upload, but a partnership with Fujitsu means the giant photo will be online the next morning.
