6 Point Perspective
Most of us who have some art education remember learning how to draw in 2, 3 and, perhaps, 4 point perspective. Dick Termes is an artist who's developed a system to draw in 4, 5 and 6 point perspective. Neat. An easy way to wrap your head around 6 point perspective (pun intended, it's coming) is to imagine sticking your head inside of a sphere and painting the outside of it with everything you saw. The net is you can capture an entire scene on a ball. For a while I was thinking about marketing balls-of-places that were manufactered using some combination of Quicktime VR and a photo printer that could print on spheres to make souvenirs of pretty places. Imagine being able to take a 360° view of the Sistene Chapel home with you! Anyway, maybe I'll do this later. Maybe somebody else will.

I have a friend who is obsessed with perspective, I think I'll show this to him and watch him freak out.
