Photosynth presentation

Amazing demonstration of the aptly-named Photosynth, a new technology that "creates breathtaking multidimensional spaces with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation." It takes photographs uploaded onto the web by ordinary people, sorts them by meta data, and compiles them to create a detailed reproduction that is browsable and zoom-able. (Microsoft does coop good companies and develops great programs sometimes.)

Tentacle Arm

Is this not awesome? I wouldn't know what to do with it, but it has suction cups.
