The 360 degree view has been there for a long time.

How'd they find enough room in the interior for a cameraman AND a camera at the same time? Let alone have him turn around 360 degrees! :)

Mechanics. And not the kind that work on your car (just trying to anticipate the kind of wise guy replies I would give :) )

I'm assuming they did it the only way that was feasible. To lower a camera into the cockpit with the top down and the put the car on a turntable. I'd imagine it would be easier to spin the car and to have a person actually turn around in it!

No, more than likely the camera rotates, not the car. There are many professional video devices available to do something like that.

Yea, right, real high-tech mechanical engineer. He ties a string around the camera, lowers it down into the middle of the car, and twists it around slowly! :)

Just pulling YOUR string, Editguy! :)

:lol: Actually, wiseguy, you're probably closer to the truth than you thought!

Thanks for clarifying, Editguy. Lest anyone think I really figured it was the work of a huge lazy susan. :lol:

Actually. I think they just gave this guy a camera: :willy:

It wasn't really such a wild idea. They have done things like that, and it's remotely possible they did it hee. Just not likely since there are more efficient ways to do it.

Thanks for the inside info, Dreamer.

In accounting, we have (some well known, others not):
FIFO: first in first out
LIFO: last in, last out
GIGO: garbage in, garbage out (more for computer geeks, eh?)
CMA: cover my rear (everyone loves that one)

Then there's the brother-sister team of DITWILY and SALY.
When an auditor doesn't know how to handle a certain type of transaction, it's: Did It That Way Last Year ....or....Same As Last Year.
