This 262-megapixel (24,168 x 10,864) mosaic is made out of 69,550 screen captures from the Star Wars series. The piece was made by Avinash Arora using some mosaic software and a tweaked algorithm. As you can see it's stunning. It was printed out at 3'x6' because the printer Avinash went to was unable to open the 712-megapixel version (3GB compressed, 40GB uncompressed) he wanted to use to make a 5' x 11' print. Over two weeks in the making, Avanish spent 30+ hours adding finishing touches in the end. Congratulations, it looks great. You could probably sell these to Star Wars fanatics for a good chunk of change. It's certainly better than my Last Supper was. Which, incidentally, didn't agree with me and came back up in the middle of the night.
A ton more pictures, including some closeups, after the jump.

This is a video of 4-year Faris watching the "no, I am your father" scene in 'The Empire Strikes Back' for the first time. His reaction is priceless. Mine? Mine was t... / Continue →
This is the entire script for the original Star Wars (aka "the first one", aka "A New Hope") colored to resemble Darth Vader's evil (but still very handsome) visage (in a similar style to this Godfather version). It was created by Geekologie reader David Johns, easily placing ... / Continue →
