Microsoft has released Photosynth!!!. This is an extremely cool image tool that builds a 3D virtual space from collections of 2D images and then allows the viewer to navigate around this 3D space to view the images.

Imagine being able to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world. With nothing more than a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing new experience. You can browse others collections or upload your own and let Photosynth do its magic to create a virtual world from your pictures.

Getting Started

Visit the Photosynth site and install the browser plug-in. Once that completes you can browse the collections that are online such as the Taj Mahal or a Red Sox/Yankees game from 2004.

If you want to create your own ‘synths’, you can visit the learning page to get started. You will need to setup an account (of course!). For tips on how to get the best results when making your own synth, check out the guide or just watch the How to Synth video.
