Mind staggering

imageI saw Photosynth some months ago and played with an earlier prototype, but today I was blown away again. Amazing technology that wow’s you time after time.
Today I saw a demo by Blaise Aguera y Arcas of Live Labs that showed where they are today with Photosynth and Seadragon and what the possibilities are in the coming years. He also demonstrated a mashup showing possibilities for on-line shops. Truly amazing! This is going to be one of these things where people will be glad to switch to Microsoft for as the added value is unimaginable.
If you want to try Photosynth yourself you can though some examples that are live at http://labs.live.com/photosynth/ or you can see Blaise during another demo 2 months back. Coolest are the BBC demo’s of e.g. Trafalgar square in 3D.
You don’t have to be a wizard to imagine if you could combine this with gigantic photo collections on the web (Flicker?) or integrate this in Virtual earth. The possibilities are only limited by our imagination. Enjoy.
