Photosynth Imagine being able to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world. With nothing more than a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing new experience. Brian Reagan MIS 304 Professor Fang Fang -Photosynth.com What is Photosynth? Recreate 360, 3-dimensional dimensional

environments, using 2-dimensional dimensional photographs Composed of a viewer and a synther Viewer Sea Dragon Synther used for creating 3-dimensional dimensional environments Entirely New Visual Medium How Photosynth Works Analyzes individual photos with a

collection Algorithms extract distinct features Similarities amongst photos identified Locations triangulated Uses data to build a 3-dimensional dimensional model/environment Seadragon Characteristics:

Speed of navigation is independent of the size or number of objects. Performance depends only on the ratio of bandwidth to pixels on the screen. Transitions are smooth as butter. Scaling is near perfect and rapid for screens of any resolution. History and Evolution Created through a collaborative process (Virtual Earth, Microsoft Research, Windows Live etc.)
