Microsoft Photosynth

Here is an interesting little online toy I stumbled across again recently. I was first introduced to PhotoSynth when I took some students to the first Microsoft DigiGirlz event earlier this year. It is one of the tools being developed by Microsoft for people to upload pictures with which PhotoSynth will work its magic and then allow the user to view the item in 3-D, focus on particular elements or view details. An extension of this was another tool/feature I got to play with called ‘Deep Zoom’.

To use Photosynth you need to sign in with your Microsoft username or password. Hotmail, MSN, Windows Live all work I think. From memory Deep Zoom is a feature of the newer Silverlight web development tools
