new microsoft thing that does some real awesome stuff with pictures, great demo here:

i'm just imagining what this can do when combined with a crawler that nips pics from webshots and flickr. imagine being able to fly around a building that you want to map and have thousands of pictures arranged on a 3d model so that you can fly to exactly what you want. has awesome potential. i've got about 500 pictures gathered for something i've been working on and it would be incredibly nifty if this could sew them all together for me

i cant imagine how it could possibly create it all by itself.

There are algorithms who can manage that. You can google around for some papers. Its interesting. My opinion of that application is: it sucks! Why? It does not make any sense. For what should it be used? Digitalising architecture? Dont make me laugh.

It looks like a tool that bewildered housewifes would be stunned by.

If there are such algorithms that can make 3d out of 2d, then this program would be worth gold, but i suspect you have to do some work yourself before it can work

it doesnt actually make a 3d model, but it arranges the photos in 3d so that you can fly around in them, its a great way to manage pictures like the clock thing, you could just fly to it instead of sifting through a directory of pictures to find one. not to mention that if it were combined with a crawler it would make finding ither people's pictures infinitely easier.
