Photosynth – 3D fun and frolics with photographs


Proof that interesting stuff still trickles out of Microsoft labs now and then, Photosynth is a technology which takes a mass collection of images and creates a 3D environment which can be navigated and examined in detail. It’s rather too innovative to explain in words, so you’ll just have to explore the thing yourself. It’s fun.

 Photosynth is an amazing new technology from Microsoft Live Labs that will change forever the way you think about digital photos…Our software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and displays them in a reconstructed three-dimensional space. With Photosynth you can: * Walk or fly through a scene to see photos from any angle. * Seamlessly zoom in or out of a photo whether it’s megapixels or gigapixels in size. * See where pictures were taken in relation to one another. * Find similar photos to the one you’re currently viewing. * Send a collection – or a particular view of one – to a friend.
