Microsoft's new imaging program Photosynth

A friend of mine who works for Microsoft showed me this new program that they have created, and it blew me away. It is a bit hard to explain at first but is in essence a way to create an interactive experience with a series of photographs that allows you to explore in almost a 3D like environment. This is way beyond a panoramic. Think of it as being able to transend the limitations of what a two dimensional photographic representation can do.

From their website:
Imagine being albe to share the places and things you love using the conematic 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 creats an amazing new experience.
