>TechnoGander: Photosynth


If you are like me, you’ve grown up in an essentially visual world, and you probably think visually more than not. One of the reasons I started blogging was because I could include images and graphics in my blog as well as design the look and feel of the whole thing (practically – I am using Blogger after all).

Where is this post leading? I have seen and experienced first-hand the great changes in photography – really from photography as we used to think about it to imaging as it is today. I cut my teeth on caustic emulsions and techniques born in the 19th century and then, in what seemed like no time at all, changed into a digital technology user and quiet fanatic. I was using Photoshop from version 2.0 and scanned in my prints to create desktop publishing documents – the scanner has now been collecting dust for some time. I am still amazed almost every day by what people are doing with current technology and what other are doing to create new technology. Take, for example, Photosynth. If you have not heard of Photosynth, or have not seen what it does and how it looks, take a look at the videos linked below

Videos: Blaise Aguera y Arcas: Jaw-dropping Photosynth demo at the TED conference and the Microsoft promo video of Photosynth.

So this post is not really about movies, but it’s related in a way, and I have to say, Photosynth is cool.
