Now this is cool – Photosynth

Sean Alexander pointed out a very interesting Microsoft Labs project whereby many similar photos can be put together to form a 3D model of an area, and browse into details of an area by using a composite of the photos.  As Sean points out, this sort of research could be applied very nicely by a photo-sharing site like Flickr.
They have a demo video up that shows St Peter’s Basilica at the vatican through the eyes of hundreds of similar photos.
