Photosynth your 3D photo world

What is it.
If you have never heard of Photosynth let me explain what it is, Imagine being able to share the places you have been and things you love using the effects of a movie, control like a video game, and the detail that you have in the real world. Just with a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing 3d world.

What is it like.
Its a bit like a panorama but you can more all around the environment and get a 3d look at the surroundings.


How does it work.
You can reconstruct the scene or object from a bunch of flat photographs the more photos you can add of the place or object the better the environment you can create. Photosynth examines your photos for similarities to each other and uses that information to estimate the shape of the subject and the vantage point each photo.

What you need.
You will need a good 3d graphics card to run it.
PCs (XP or Vista)
Windows Live ID
Broadband Internet connection.
