Having spent the a while researching and working with the concepts of Virtual Realities, Virtual Worlds and Augmented realities I have found this clip to be very interesting. In its simplicity this augmented reality is about the massive cross-integration of images according to their metadata and image features. A fascinating concept that in the clip (and in Bing Maps) is performed with incredible detail. Having also played with PhotoSynth recently at the Microsoft Australia DigiGirlz conference it is interesting to see that the synths are incorporated into the online maps as an interest area. I am sure that I will use this clip as some stimulus for explaining the concepts of augmented reality, modelling and the use of models in virtual environments. A very interesting clip. Enjoy.

From TED: “TED Talks In a demo that drew gasps at TED2010, Blaise Aguera y Arcas demos new augmented-reality mapping technology from Microsoft.”
