Photos linked across the world -- Photosynth demonstration

This is Blaise Aguera y Arcas domonstrating new image technology at Microsquash called Photosynth. I normally don't go for the technie end of things on this blog, but I believe this warrants the attention. Just watch, and make sure to get to the last 1/4, that's where things get trippy. The positive ramifications are fantastic, I haven't come up with distopic ones yet, but I'm sure they exist as well. Creating an accurate, 3-dimensional wiki of all the world's favorite places... pretty amazing really (I know I know, that's a very liberal use of the term, but you get what I mean).

Thanks to Muse for turning me on to this video.

ps/edit/announcement: HOLY CRAP I JUST FIXED HTML CODE!!! When trying to post this the video didn't embed right and I just ... fixed it. With, like <'s and /'s and everything. I feel so... burly -- so technologically potent.
