    Looks like Microsoft has been hard at work. First Surface and now this.

    It is one of the most amazing thing i've ever seen. Technology never fails to amaze me.

    that is pretty cool, but I doubt that it will make it into a shipping product.

    Very cool indeed. But what is the point of having something like that?

    you can 3 dimensionally, on screen, rebuild structues useing random picutres, i'm sure there is an educational and commercial value for that.

    Well, it is very interesting technology. However, one of the speaker's earliest lines is:
    So Microsoft is doing their normal thing of buying up other people's technology. (Not that Apple hasn't done that on occasion...)

    Would Apple be able to do this sort of thing with the Leopard CoreImage?

    The first bit of that video reminded me of the Wii's Photo Channel.

    Very impressive. I'm sure the way things are going this will be available in some form sooner rather than later.

    Yeah, and that "table" will be Surface. That would be amazing!


    But, was there a cluster in the back running this software, or an octo-core machine with a bajillion Bytes (BB) of RAM?

    You'd be wrong. If you look at the very beginning when he launches the app, there is the imfamous OSX dashboard...er....um....Vista side-whatever there, with the standard ugliness and all.

    You see, that's what I love about MR. Thanks mashinhead!!! And for all of you guys who can't drop the hate for a second, this is cool stuff from Microsoft. As a former art archivist and curator, and imagery researcher, constructing virtual models from composite images points to alternative ways of accessing information. (It still doesn't make Vista etc suck less:D )
