Jaw-dropping Photosynth Demo - (TED - May, 2007)
Using photos of oft-snapped subjects (such as Notre Dame cathedral)
scraped from around the Web, this short video demonstrates Photosynth
(based on Seadragon) technology to create multidimensional spaces
with zoom and navigation features that outstrip all expectation. It
permits a composite visual image of something to be assembled by
creating what are essentially content-based hyperlinks between all
the images of the item (person/place/thing) available throughout the
Hubble Footage (Hubble site - no date)
Hubble's "Image Tours" show you Hubble pictures through an
astronomer's eyes, pinpointing and explaining key features. Point and
click through these interactive images to add understanding to the
joy of cosmic sightseeing. Take an armchair tour of the Tadpole
Gallaxy, the Helix Nebula, the Eagle Nebula and six others; the
beauty of the universe is astonishing.
