Eh...OLD.

It's just a demo for QTVR (QuickTime Virtual Reality).

They take a series of shots from different angles and depths and spline them together.
That one was just a panorama, here's a 360' of Time Square.

Maybe not as impressive on the Zoom level, but same technology.

When they say "gigapixel", they're talking about the image itself, and not the camera that took it.

Not your fault JB


I'm such a killjoy.
