In fact it is so impressive that i have to reproduce Tarleton’s post and urge you, if you are reading this blog, to check out this video and try the demo. This is a tool named Photosynth that uses image database, such as Flickr, to create a visul space. In other words, it uses large amounts or pictures, taken by unrelated individuals and constructs a larger space with abilities to zoom, rotate and cruse around. You have to try it in order to get as excited as I am at the moment.
On a different note, provided that this is an MS development, i think it shows that there is still a lot to the MS-Google battle. Very impressive.
