From edj: Came across this the just this afternoon and I've been blown away by how fast and easy it is to use. It's utterly amazing. The main jist of it is you can type in the name of a place, this thing will go grab all photos it can find about that place, make a 3d map of the actual area and apply those photos to it ready for browsing - and bits of the photos that match other photos become links. Youtube video is here. And the most amazing thing is that you can actually USE it. Link to the online tech demo is here.
