Microsoft is hoping to provide software called Photosynth to generate a 3D environment created by a community of photographers.

The technology provided by SeaDragon does look amazing – and the demonstration video is worth a watch to just to see what the possibilities this application can deliver.

For a more detailed explaination on how (again as a video) Photosynth works is here.

The obvious link with mobile, and surprising considering this is a Microsoft showcase, seeing Wikipedia referenced. The brochure says:

Photosynth begins by processing an image and creating a point cloud that gives the image a unique identifier, a DNA-like profile that describes the features that have been recognized in the image.

Once you have this ‘Image DNA’ things can get really interesting: Photosynth could show you other photos that have similar features to the one you ’re currently viewing.

Annotations, tags, or even URLs could one day be applied to an image and transferred to similar images.

Photosynth could connect your photographs into a seamless web of images and information, allowing you to browse a virtual universe of interconnected scenes that constantly evolves and changes over time.

Pure indexing fodder! So will this create new spaces; inter-personal, shared or defined by the software?

Due: Soon..
