this new Microsoft image search technology could really change the way we do image search and visual information lookup.
The PhotoSynth Project is something I have been watching for a while now and a functional demo is available at http://labs.live.com/photosynth/
it truly is amazing and although the theory is simple for us to understand I can only begin to imagine the math behind it.
I personally can't wait for it to become a reality for me to use on a daily basis (*evil cackle*)
you can also catch the video of Photosynth architect Blaise Aguera y Arcas' presentation at the TED conference - quick and awesome
