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 right...it's a technology worth staying in touch with the progress...

Hey Mike -- Love the idea about hyperlinking videos! Might even be neat if all the hyperlinked 2D videos could be combined into a 3D video to have a single data file
