Beautifully Unwrapped Flowers (15 photos)

Taking beautiful photos of flowers from Flickr, Golan Levin and Kyle McDonald worked their magic to give us a whole new way of enjoying them. Using panoramic-imaging software that they co-wrote, they produced flower panoramas, or panoramic images from inside a flower.

The software was originally created not to unwrap flowers, however, but to unwrap the 360-degree panoramic digital videos produced by the popular Sony Bloggie solid-state camera. They modified the software and called it FlowerUnwarper, optimizing it for unwarping flower images. They've even provided the source code, so you can try this out yourself!

The passion fruit one looks like a nice fantasy land that I'd find some weird strange creatures in. Fantastic.
