Photosynth: Getting ahead

In honor of the Emmy awards, here are the Synthy awards for best synth of a head.


The way-too-much-information Synthy goes to the 154 photo, 75% synthy “Head.1“.  Style points are awarded for at least making sure there were no bats in the cave for the up-the-nose shot, which synthed in marvelously.


Best supporting actress goes to “Charlotte“.  This 100% synthy, 21 photo collection of black_bird_blue’s six year old daughter in Mulan face paint is very creepy.  She looks like she should be walking the halls of the old mansion in the Shining.


The viewer’s choice Synthy goes to the 83 photo, 100% synthy “Simpson head“, by GameRate.


The Synthy for worst quality photos that actually synthed goes to “Me 😉 Movie Test” for the feed-converted-video-into-the-synther synth.  “My head” by AdamantForce gets the synthy for worst quality photos that didn’t synth (much).


Technical achievement Synthy goes to “Karl’s Head” for being able to somehow, unassisted, create a 135 photo, 74% synthy head that has a great point cloud.  Again, kudos for having a clean sniffer.


Best self-taken synth of a head in a ballpark goes to “My Head 2” by Piper5150.

    I didn’t see where else to post a general comment so i figured here is as good as any place. I’m just really bummed that this is being held from mac users. I just switched to OSX 2 months ago and am in love with it. I saw a presentation demonstrating photosynth at and was amazed. This is an awesome technology and if the photos along with the relations between them could be backed up or taken as a snapshot at certain intervals, we could begin a visual history of our planet from here out, and could even broadcast bits of this in seti projects or whatever. The value of this system is HUGE.

    Restricting something so binding and useful, to one operating system type is pretty petty. Maybe the labs just havn’t gotten around to the little details, I could be jumping the gun, but I suspect it wouldn’t be too tough. Anyway, kickass work, and open it up.
