I posted about a year and a half ago about Photosynth, which is a pretty wild technology, basically it’s a program that can handle 300 mega-pixel images with no delay. It can also build environments based on public photos on Flickr. So say you wanted to see a 360 degree view of Times Square. Photosynth can basically search Flickr for photos of Times Square, then build them into a 360 degree panorama in virtually no time at all. But click the link to find out more about Photosynth. Now imagine taking technology like that and overlaying it on a mapping program. Kind of like a street view on steroids that also has the ability to update in real time. Check out Blaise Aguera y Arcas’ TED talk about it below. It is some pretty awesome looking technology.
