Photosynths from SXSW

Sign in to queue


In case you haven’t heard, a ton of web geeks are currently attending the annual South by Southwest festival, a week-long music, film, and web conference that takes place in Austin, Texas. You’ve probably seen the blog posts, Twitter updates, and photo uploads from SXSW throughout the past week and then some. After a while, those not attending the event may get a little bored with all the SXSW-related activity. But  Phil Wheat is doing something pretty cool with his SXSW photos which I hope more people will do, too. Phil has transformed his pictures into photosynths using the Microsoft Live Labs’ Photosynth technology. There are currently 3 sets of SXSW synths available online containing hundreds of his photos stitched together for zoomable 3D viewing. At the moment, though, 2 of the 3 sets are looking out a window. I’d love to see more synths of SXSW in action. What better way to virtually attend the festival than with the 360 degree experience Photosynth provides? C’mon, let’s see some more synths! You can heck out Phil’s current set of pics here .
