Obama Inauguration in 3D by PhotoSynth

Obama Inauguration in 3D by PhotoSynth

Those who weren’t able to go and personally witness the inauguration of Obama are left with no choice but to watch it on TV. Those who don’t have TV still have online streaming from Hulu and uStream yet the one by CNN using PhotoSynth got most of my attention.

CNN asked people who took pictures of “the moment” to send it over and be added to the 3D-view of Obama’s oath-taking.

The result — a bird’s eye-view of the entire event. Here is the CNN PhotoSynth site. Microsoft also made a separate website (Photosynth.net) with a more comprehensive collection covering the greater DC area.

Can’t say it enough — PhotoSynth rocks!

  5. What a relief to discover a page that may be ultimately really worth reading! I’ve been seeking all-around about this topic but men and women just put rubbish posts, or brief meaningless posts. I have seen a couple vids on youtube but it’s now the same as reading a good post. Great job!
