Default Exploring photo collections in 3D

Dumb code monkeys tinker about with UT. Smart ones create awesomeness like this:

Wow! Some very cool techniques used there... TY.


Edit: Check out the people involved in the project at the top of the page also, and their other projects. For example, here is Seitz on Google Video talking about navigating online image collections.

Edit 2: That Google Video link is actually a more detailed presentation given by this team to the Google crew, showing the previous version of this software, and the components that make it up. If you want to understand what they are doing in detail and have an hour to blow, it's well worth it.

Here is what their partnership with Microsoft on this project has produced.

Edit: Caution! This crashed my PC on the first run. After about 15 minutes of playing around it locked up my video on that monitor and the only way to un-jumble it was to reboot. Close down other apps before trying this. It has low level direct hardware hooks and it is beta quality at best.
