Occipital is the first company to take advantage of this HTML-plus-gyroscope magic, allowing you to explore any 360 Panorama photo by spinning around as if you were really there. In Occipital's demo, you can also see the original photos on Twitpic, or locate them on a map using Apple's own Maps app.
