what you ll see today
What You’ll See Today
  • Photosynth
    • Built by the Live Labs team – in partnership with many – It allows us to see how many people’s photos relate to one another and to the larger world.
    • The Photosynth viewer is being released today.
what we ll only talk about today
What We’ll only Talk About Today
  • Virtual Earth 3D
    • Built by the Windows Live Local team, VE3D brings us one step closer to having the virtual world mirrored by the virtual world. It represents a new state-of-the-art for navigating the 3D world from your browser.
    • Released on Monday (11/6)
  • Key Points
    • Runs in the browser as ActiveX plugin
    • Uses the same backend as Live maps and Photosynth
    • Rich mashup API
    • Photo realistic city models
    • Photosynth is the “long tail” to the VE3D
  • Photosynth is a poster child example of the values and strategy of Live Labs
    • Rich collaboration of many parties (MSR, UW, Product teams, etc.)
    • Rapid time to release (4 mo. to prototype, 3 more mo. to preview)
    • Turns user generated content into entirely new value
    • Shows how hybrid applications that are part client and part server can realize the best of both worlds (rich interaction with vast and rich remote data)
    • Play with it today: http://labs.live.com/photosynth/
  • Props to our homies:
    • UW: Noah Snavely Steve Seitz
    • MSR: Rick Szeliski.
