Just About the Coolest Thing Ever

I saw this a few months ago and it stunned and fascinated me. It is a demonstration of a new technology called “Photosynth,” a product from Microsoft Live Labs, created by researchers from the software company and the University of Washington. Truly spectacular, especially if you’re a digital photo buff. You can find out more about Photosynth here.

Now, this particular “TED Talk” leads me to another of my favorite sites... definitely a place to visit  if you’re ever hankering to have your mind blown by the creativity of other people. Visit and you’ll quickly see what I’m talking about.

From their site:
TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader.

The annual conference now brings together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).

This site makes the best talks and performances from TED available to the public, for free. More than 200 talks from our archive are now available, with more added each week. These videos are released under a Creative Commons license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.
