Photosynth, the innovative Microsoft Live Labs application that was explained in a few online talks a while ago, shows off its spectacular capability of creating 3D navigable spaces from hundreds and thousands of 2D photos by capturing the exact moment of inauguration at CNN.

One can relive this event by browsing from way back in the crowds, over to the very first row, to even right behind Barack Obama. If only that guy just one 1 meter away with the silver digital camera would submit his pictures...





Sounds pretty impressive. But unfortunately I can't see it. For some reason it wants to install silverlight to view the photosynth... BUT I already have the photosynth plugin installed and can see everything on photosynth.net...

So it feels to me like M$ is thinking "we have this really cool photosynth technology - maybe we can use it to increase out penetration stats for silverlight"... Or maybe I'm just cynical but I'm not installing silverlight to find out if it adds anything to the experience so I guess I'll miss out on the whole thing :(

Ditto. Seems very impressive, but 'Microsoft Silverlight may not be supported on your computer's hardware or operating system.'
