Video: Photosynth Demonstration

Microsoft Live Labs: Photosynth

"The Photosynth Technology Preview is a taste of the newest - and, we hope, most exciting - way to view photos on a computer. Our software takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and then displays the photos in a reconstructed three-dimensional space, showing you how each one relates to the next.

In our collections, you can access gigabytes of photos in seconds, view a scene from nearly any angle, find similar photos with a single click, and zoom in to make the smallest detail as big as your monitor."

It looks like PhotoSynth has the potential to be used in creative, engaging ways in educational settings, especially for visual learnings. Imagine what students could do if given the opportunity to interact with PhotoSynth content on large screen displays!
