Photosynth

April 18th, 2007 | Posted by paul in Uncategorized

Photosynth, the brainchild of Blaise Aguera y Arcas, takes image interaction to a whole new level.

According to the website, “Photosynth takes a large collection of photos of a place or an object, analyzes them for similarities, and then displays the photos in a reconstructed three-dimensional space, showing you how each one relates to the next.”

Here’s Blaise giving his “Jaw-Dropping” demo at TED2007.

Imagine using this software along with Ken Han’s multi-touch display. Wow.  Add the rapidly increasing amount of photographic data of aerial photographers and Google Earth will become increasingly realistic and real-time.   Another step towards hypermediation.
