Photosynth

October 28, 2006

Don’t be fooled by the man in the beginning of the video. I know, it’s funny because he looks exactly like a long-haired Michael Imperioli (Christopher from “The Sopranos”). But this is serious shit. Very intriguing work coming out of the Microsoft Live Labs. Photosynth allows users to walk through virtual/3D worlds via a photo database. Surprised it’s coming out of Microsoft of all places. No word yet on whether it will become an application or whether it will be available for open-source. I would love a program like this to manage the hundreds of hundreds of photos I take of one thing. For photographers or people in New Media (whatever that is..HA), this is something you should definitely check out. A lot of potential in this project.
