Blaise Aguera y Arcas: Jaw-dropping Photosynth demo

A colleague of mine just brought this to my attention--and, oh man, amazing! At the end of the presentation Arcas mentions that the software essentially creates links based on the content of the photos. This is amazing in itself, but then when one considers the wealth of meta-data attached to each photo, the composite image's information-richness is staggering. Take a look:

Too bad though the moderator fellow at the end had to wear that outfit! Homey watched The Matrix too much, and thinks he can get away with a Nehru jacket.

Mmmmm, foxy nerds. Love the soft cream shirt and confident nervousness at the badassity that he is presenting. Hawt. Hate the nouveau Zen on whitebread jacket. You done good in your assessment, grasshopper.

And sorry, about the actual content -- yeah it was mad AWESOME. I am blown away by where we'll be with technology when you and I are our parents' age. It's gonna be Minority Report.

Thanks for the heads-up!
