Photosynth and Silverlight
Microsoft just released this, and I think it is incredibly cool stuff. It is reminiscent of Make3D and DeepZoom.
In fact, although you have to download a separate plug-in to actually run Photosynth, by the looks of it I am fairly sure that they used Silverlight on the back-end with DeepZoom.
Anyways, what do you guys think?
I think this is really cool technology, and more specifically I think Silverlight 2 is pretty awesome. It is a lot more programmer-friendly than Flash is (C# vs. ActionScript), and is really powerful. I can't wait until the release version comes out.
But yeah...if they aren't using Silverlight on the back-end of that Photosynth thing, I would be very surprised.
