Microsoft Brings You the Inauguration

Sign in to queue

Description

Earlier this week we heard Barack Obama was the first President to have the official picture taken with a digital camera. Well the firsts don't stop there. Microsoft is teaming up with Pic2009.org to bring you the Presidential Inauguration streamed live in Silverlight goodness. 

But that's not all, as potentially two million people press the trigger on their cameras Tuesday night, Microsoft will be working with CNN.com to bring you a Photosynth of the historic event as it unfolds. Allowing you to effortlessly flow between each point of view on everything from cellphones to pro camera gear. Watch CNN to see this synth on their multitouch Magic Wall and then go look for yourself at http://cnn.com/themoment. Are you at the inauguration and want to join in the fun? As soon as you see Obama raise his hand, start snapping and send your photos to cnnmoment@live.com. See more on the Photosynth blog.
