Photosynth again, evolved

Last year I’ve written a short entry in my blog about Photosynth, a Microsoft research project which is able to extract spatial information out of pictures and rearrange them in space. At SIGGRAPH 2008 they presented a very nice picture viewer which is using an advanced version of the original Photosynth. Besides arranging pictures in the space itself it actually can discover useful orbiting paths and manipulate images in a way to support a very seamless viewer experience. Besides this, it actually can work with social image sites like Flickr and allows the user in this way to use existing collections in which he can add his own snapshots of the same motive. Hopefully this will become a available product soon …
