NASA Gigapan Camera Captures Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire In 260-Megapixel Glory

Sorry guys, it's that time again. Another Bugatti post. But this one's different. How would the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire look like as a 260-megapixel image through NASA's Mars Rover-based Gigapan camera mount? Updated

Update: Since we first brought you the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire Gigapan image, Image Engineers has put up another Gigapan shot, this time depicting not just a single car, but the entire Geneva Motor Show floor. Head to their site to see the image and see if you can find the creepy man staring into the camera about 200 yards away.

The Gigapan camera system was originally a collaborative development between Google, Carnegie Mellon University and NASA Ames Intelligent Systems Division's Robotics Group. While it's not a camera per se, it is a highly intelligent robotic platform that holds a high resolution camera on board. In order to create the ultra-high resolution images, the robotic armature moves using mathematical pinpoints to photograph a scene and after taking the first shot it then re-aims with great precision, to take another photograph. Once the scene has been fully captured, the system then stitches all of the elements together to create one huge photograph, in this case, a 260-megapixel shot of the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centienne.
