    Cool Dept: Microsoft Announces Photosynth

    Photosynth from Microsoft Live Labs may change the way you think about digital photos. Photosynth will take a large collection of photos of a place or object, analyze them for similarities, and display them in a reconstructed 3-Dimensional space. http://labs.live.com/photosynth/whatis/

    You can virtually walk through or fly through a scene to see photos from any angle, seamlessly zoom in or out of a photograph, or see what hundreds of other people shot at the same location. Very cool

    There's a demonstrational video and a 'smart photos' example page here: http://labs.live.com/photosynth/video.html

    No word yet on an exact release date.

    That is really cool and really impressive.

    The screenshot of the 3D view reminds me a lot of an old Puzz-3D computer game I have, actually.
