PhotoSynth From Microsoft Is Friggin’ cool

Microsoft Research launched a Preview of photosynth which is an awesome technology.   Imagine looking at your Photos as thought they were spatially placed around a 3d world…

Imagine it this way.  You take family photos around the house, and the software uses similarity in the images to position them in a 3d model of your home, so you can wander about your home and see the various photos presented in the space they took place. 

Combine this with Video Walls that Microsoft is demonstrating at CES, and In their Redmond Home of the Future, and you end up with the ability to wander about the real home, and present memories contextually. 

Check out the demo here.
