Following Mark Vergeer's 360 degree tour of his game room back in December using 360 Panorama for his iPhone, I decided to finally give it a try myself on my own iPhone. It was awkward considering there is no good central place to stand and the lighting is not great, but I guess it gives some idea of what is going on. I think I'll follow this up with a guided video tour, since I'm long overdue for one anyway. Panoramas follow:

A basic view at the bottom of the stairs. To the left is the mostly unused office (our real "office" is upstairs), to the right is the main collection storage area, and down the hallway is the arcade and gym area. All but the latest computers and videogame systems are here in the basement.

Wow

Good work, and thanks for sharing it with us all. A decent collection you've got there.

Verbot

I noticed you had a "Verbot" in one of the pictures. Does it have anything to do with the chatterbot program?

Thanks,

Unfortunately, the Verbot

Unfortunately, the Verbot doesn't work, but in any case, it's just a Tomy toy robot from the 1980's. The robots I have that work are the Hero Jr. and the R2-D2, though the latter favors the toy side more (I got it mostly for my daughters).

Thanks for the heads-up on the software. It works very well, though not necessarily for the situation I was trying to use it for. Should be fun to mess with regardless, though.

Well, like I said in the video (if you could get that far), eventually I will replace that TV. I have a good 50" 1080p TV in our family room, which is also where all of the modern videogame consoles are and our two main computers. There's really no major reason to replace that basement TV (it's a 32" Sony CRT) at this time because it's suitable for basic cable and older game consoles. We're really only down there when we work out, so sometimes the girls watch TV or a DVD on it. For that, it's perfectly suitable (in fact, I often have Netflix or Slingbox running on the arcade machine, which only has a 27" Wells Gardner arcade monitor).

I'll most likely be moving the family room TV to our bedroom when we re-do that at some point and just getting a bigger TV for the family room (our wall unit might be able to squeeze in around 55" - 60" depending upon the bezel). Only then will I consider getting a different TV for the basement, and then maybe a really cheap giant DLP set (73"?), which might make it a fun alternative... Lots to do though in regards to the house (always requires work) before any of that happens, though... ;-)
