Microsoft has announced its new Photosynth application that can turn normal digital photos into 3D, 360-degree experiences. By providing large collections of photographs in the number of hundreds, Photosynth analyses each photo you upload for similar characteristics, and uses that data to recreate and map the environment digitally. Anybody else who sees your “synth” is put right in your shoes, sharing in your experience, with detail, clarity and scope impossible to achieve in conventional photos or videos. Excellent program you can use, right before you bring down the house for renovation – or move to a nicer apartment, incase you get nostalgic someday! [Photosynth]
