a Photosynth demo

http://www.ted.com/talks/view/id/129

Wait until you see THIS! The future is NOW. Amazing technology.

This is what thet site says about this talk:
Using photos of oft-snapped subjects (like Notre Dame) scraped from around the Web, Photosynth creates breathtaking multidimensional spaces with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation. Its architect, Blaise Aguera y Arcas, shows it off in this standing-ovation demo. Curious about that speck in corner? Dive into a freefall and watch as the speck becomes a gargoyle. With an unpleasant grimace. And an ant-sized chip in its lower left molar. "Perhaps the most amazing demo I've seen this year," wrote Ethan Zuckerman, after TED2007. Indeed, Photosynth might utterly transform the way we manipulate and experience digital images.

Make sure you catch the meaning of things when he talks about doing a search on Flickr for a Notre Dame and then building a picture of it from the bits and pieces of the search results. Pictures will be linked together. Incredible!

Make sure you watch this if you'd like to see the future.

The word WOW is used often, but I was literally sitting with my mouth wide open. "In a few years" ???

People think they are behind now. We are about to make the last 10 years look like the stoneage.
