Earlier this year at the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh, Blaise Agüera y Arcas gave a sneak peek of the new Photosynth technology. The talk starts with a demonstration of the Photosynth-derived 360 panorama capture experience that shipped for tablets in Windows 8.1, then shows off what you can now see for yourself on http://photosynth.net/preview. Check it out!
And here's the synth that got the most oohs and aaahs from the crowd in Edinburgh. It was shot on a mobile phone the day before the conference. Secret tip: To see just how curvy the path is, click on the viewer, then type "m" (for map).
