Microsoft Photosynth – blow your mind

28 11 2006

Occasionally there is an “Oh wow” moment when I come across a new internet technology that:

a) I have not foreseen

b) Has the potential to be utterly revolutionary in unimaginable ways.

There have been many such moments and certainly seeing Google Earth for the first time was one such moment.   I want to share a new technology that is being developed by Microsoft to create 3D worlds out of any collection of photos that share common features.  You can watch a demo video here, or download a technology preview here.  At present you can only use demo sets of photos but later the plan is for people to use their own photos or for webcrawlers to drag photos off the net.
