Photosynth at Microsoft

I actually got to play with Photosynth a while back...i think this technology has huge potential..."creating hyperlink among related pictures" automatically is definitely a leap in technology...i can't see why this can't be applied to "creating hyperlink among related videos" further down the road...imagine a football match where there're hundreds of video footages by professional cameramen or even from spectators taking video from the stand...there'd be one additional dimension (time) to worry about (beyond what they've applied to space right now)...but somehow that seems to me a easier challenge than the one they're solving's a technology worth staying in touch with the progress...

Microsoft's TouchWall

It's only a matter of time...i predict these sort of multi-wall surface will be all over in malls and in homes in the next few yrs..and its price would only be as expensive as the LCD projector...the infrared sensor/camera should be dirt cheap..i'm excited about the stuff that ppl can use this with...
