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.
21. Where you go when you need fish food
You go to a pet shop, or a pet supply shop. Google Translator sort of works for this – if you translate “pet supples” from English to Czech, you get “chovatelske”. However you can’t translate “pet shop” or “pet supply shop” into anything meaningful for some reason. Anyway, here it is:
22. Hippy czech flag
This turned out to be the single toughest clue in the whole treasure hunt. Many, many people sent in a picture of a normal Czech flag, flapping in the wind. That was in fact the original idea for this clue, until my trickster colleague, Gerardo, proposed something harder. After all, there are lots of normal flags around, but only one with a flower on it!
Most people sent in this one, which I believe is the Czech Military airport in Kbely.
A lot of people had trouble with this one. Here is the answer. The name literally means “At Stelcer’s”.
This one really was hard, because the name of the pub is “U Stelceru” which is an example of declension. The non-declined version of the word (without the ‘u’ on the end) doesn’t lend itself well to search engine algorithms.
25. A raven (or a type of crow anyway)
Again, there were a few correct answers here.
26. Pizza = mc squared
Pizza Einstein. What else?
27 Where God can read the time from his chair in heaven
Yes, this one was hard. But we did publish a hint about it. The church is the closest church to the TV Tower, but the clock is not quite visible. However, a few searches in Google Images would show you this church.
You can see the church in some of the results if you search for “Prague vineyard“.
29. This building http://bit.ly/5jpfY1
The giveway is the giant lettered sign on the top of the building:
30. This place http://www.360cities.net/image/treasure-hunt-clue-01
I hid the real location of this image during the contest. If you check it now, it’s placed correctly.
In case you’re curious, this is the Clinic for Acute Psychiatric Disorders. If you lost the contest, we hope you won’t have to go here. But at least you know where it is now
And the winner is….
