These people use the phone and attempt something unusual and supply the Xperia studio with their results. The results are more than usually astounding!
One of the recent projects completed at xperia studio is an attempt to capture 360 degree panaromic view of Slickrock trail from the viewpoint of handlebar of a cyclist.
