Augmented Maps with Photosynth

I don’t have anything intelligent to say about it, but I was compelled to post it. I’m a big Photosynth fanboy, and always believed it has great potential for augmented reality. On this talk from last Thursday at TED, We see that Microsoft has similar ideas in mind. I would expect more surprises coming from Redmond in 2010

You can read more details about it over at MIT Technology Review or on Bing’s blog.

  1. About time.
    Given how long they have had photosynth I’ve been rather amazed by the lack of progress so far.
    They do a lot of the hard work with the reconstructions, then don’t provide something as simple as a mesh exporter of the result :-/

  2. Crazy cool.

    I’m actually pretty amazed by the progress. The 3D mapping of the world looks like its happening much faster than I thought it would.
