Japanese developers at the Usuda Research Institute and Systems Corp. venture firm have developed a software called Sky Theater to allow a mobile device to view huge 2,000-inch sized images stored on the net.
The system displays only a segment of the complete photo. When you move the phone you "walk" across the photo and see another section of it. The user experience looks very intuitive and engaging.

The system is still just a prototype and Usuda Research Institute and Systems is still pondering how to commercialize this. I could imagine having such a system at museums where visitors can have a photorealistic map of the venue on their handset.
