Last August 20 Microsoft announced photosynth as a live service, meaning you can now start using this beta product. I’m definitely going to give it a shot, the demos are pretty awesome so thats worth checking out as well.
Microsoft Live Labs Introduces Photosynth, a Breakthrough Visual Medium
Share more than photos; share an experience.
Photosynth Web site
REDMOND, Wash. — Aug. 20, 2008 — First there was the snapshot, and then came video. Now there is Microsoft Photosynth, a new service from Microsoft Live Labs that goes far beyond how you now view, experience and share photos.
You can share or relive a vacation destination or explore a distant museum or landmark; with a digital camera and your own creativity and inspiration, you can use Photosynth to transform regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience. Anybody who sees your “synth” is put right in your shoes, sharing in the same sense of exhilaration and wonder that you did at the time, with detail, clarity and scope impossible to achieve in conventional photos or videos.
