Three Technologies that will change photography

Quite an interesting article in the Microsoft PhotoBlog: Program Manager Jordan Schwartz describes 3 Technologies that will change Photography.

The three he cites are Mini Projectors, Liquid Lenses and GPS.  And it’s worth the link just for the mad-cool photo of the Mini Projector.

This would also be a great chance to link again to two amazing photographic technologies under development from Microsoft Research: Photosynth and HD View.

What do you think?  Which innovations are really going to change the role photography plays in our lives?

    Rob, I’m sure you know this already, but photosynth/seadragon is built into Silverlight already (sorry to keep posting silverlight comments on your blogs, but I’m like a kid with a new toy at the minute…)

    cathal I wasn’t aware that photosynth/seadragon was built into Silverlight.  Do you have any examples or doucmentation that you could point us too?
