Hello Photosynth, Love from Australia.

I live only 5 minutes away from the most awesome vista in the world: the Sydney Harbour.

Now you can experience the Harbour on a not-so-sunny day (that is, this morning) thanks to Microsoft Photosynth (note: Mac users: we’re working on it. In the current term, you will need to Bootcamp to see Photosynths. The VMWare Fusion guys say that their Beta 2 of Fusion 2.0 works OK with Photosynth)

Photosynth is available for public creation of synths. Grabs some photos of an object or place, and synth them.

For fun, I also added a synth of “Rambo”, The Big Merino from Goulburn, NSW.

The on10.net Shutterspeed episode has an interview with the Photosynth team.

    The Photosynth site is down! grr… Cannot wait to see it once it’s back up.

    Normal first-24-hour-cycle scale to massive interest issues.

    Thankfully, the Photosynth team are surprised by the interest, but have architected in a way that enables them to scale up. Although not instantaneously :-)

    Photosynth is a discovery, information-extraction, normalization, input and automated modeling tool that will be important for various things. There are already several synths on the Photosynth website to view them. It doesn’t look like a competing project to Photosynth.
