The Gigapixel Treasure Hunt is now finished. For those of you who missed it, we released the world’s largest 360 panorama and gave 30 clues which people had to find, and send to us. The first person to send us the highest number of correct answers wins $1000.
Here is the second set of clues, revealed. You can see the first set, if you missed it.
11. “Pat & Mat” at work, up there
Wow! There were at least SIX “Pat & Mat” figures in the Gigapixel image! Here is one of them:
For those who don’t know, or don’t want to search google for “pat and mat“, they are a couple of characters on children’s TV – adorable guys who build stuff.
12. A driving range
The nearest driving range to the TV Tower (that I know of anyway) is located on Libeňský ostrov (Libensky Island) over in the north.
13. A water tower being beautified
Water towers in Central Europe don’t look like their USA counterparts. Here, they’re fancy, full of rooms, and overall very neat. I would love to live in one of these:
14. A “gentleman’s nightclub”
I wanted to be tactful as we try to be family-friendly. Yes I was talking about a brothel. They seem to be somewhat semi-legal in Prague so it’s not too hard to guess.
15. A clock that’s wrong
This one was not as tricky as some people suggested. The picture was NOT taken between 11am and 3pm as I suggested – I actually finished more like 4:45pm. I suggested in one of my hints that the photo was taken in October, meaning the time on certain clocks would have to be wrong, because it would already be dark outside:
16. A sphere (no, NOT the spherical image itself)
Somebody did right-click on the panorama and select “little planet”, and made a screenshot. Sorry! Here is the sphere:
17. A chairlift
There is a chairlift at Prague Zoo. This might be discovered by a web or image search.
18. A bulls-eye and cross-hairs
19. A female pink face on a window
There were a few of these. Here is one example:
20. A square and a triangle next to each other (in a field)
This one required some searching. Some people mistook the “field” part of the clue. Others mistook “square” for “rectangle”. This was one answer provided by a few people.
So, that’s the second set of answers.
We’ll give the third set of answers very soon, and then we’ll announce the winner!
