Really cool paper from MS Research


A few years ago at TED, MS showed off something called Photosynth. It was an application that discovered correspondences between images submitted by end users and build them into a sort of 3 dimensional point cloud that allowed you to see how the pictures related to each other in 3D space. It was obvious where they were eventually going, which was to create 3D scans of environments from crowdsourced data. This paper has an update on how their research is going.
