This is some trippy new technology that will have a huge impact on digital darkrooms and the Internet graphic environment. Photosynth allows one to locally or remotely interact with visual data as it creates full spatial environments from unrelated pictures that from a panoramic, multidimensional space that allows you to zoom again and again almost seamlessly within a picture and from picture to picture. The video has Blaise Agüera y Arcas, Photosynth's creator demonstrating the program. It's quite amazing to watch the zoom and navigation capabilities of this program.

Blaise Agüera y Arcas founded Seadragon Software in 2003 and Microsoft acquired them in 2006. Seadragon is a revolutionary technology for storing and managing large visual images through computational analysis. Let's hope this hippie's creation is is used for good purposes.
