AI Street View

Today I have mainly been creating AI generated Street View scenes of historical locations. The result is AI Time Travel Street View, a little virtual world of 360 degree panoramas which you can wander around in while exploring Medieval France, Renaissance Venice and Victorian London (as dreamed by AI).

Navigating around AI Time Travel Street View is fairly intuitive. Just click on the arrow links in the images to wander around. If you wish to travel through time and space to a new era you just need to clcik on one of the buttons in the top-left corner of a panorama.

If you want to create your own AI 'Street View' panoramas then you can use Skybox AI. Just enter a prompt description of the scene you require and Skybox AI will generate a 360 degree panorama based on your prompt.

If you want to create your own virtual world you can use Panolens to link together a number of different panoramas (created by Skybox AI or any other panoramic software). You can cheat a little by just cloning the Glitch of my AI Time Travel Street View. Play around with this Glitch and you should be able to work out how to add your own panoramic images and how to create the links between two different panoramas.

Hat-trip to Map Channels, whose panoramas of Victorian London inspired me to create this Street View tour of imagined historical locations.

Nice work. It's like walking through the paintings in an art gallery.
