Link: Photosynth demo at TED 2007

Here’s a stunning preview of the coming mirror world:  new software visually relates and stitches together myriad photographs and from them models the 3D environment from which they were taken. Check out the reconstruction of Notre Dame from Flickr photos in Blaise Aguera y Arcas’ demo of “Photosynth” at TED 2007. This is truly amazing stuff. Geotagged photos will of course make the software’s job a lot easier, but this technology seems to do it all from images alone.
