Microsoft announced earlier this month that photos could be transformed into 3D models. This went down worse than Microsoft had expected, and was greeted with a wave of laughter from the Tech community. That is, until now. Microsoft has set itself a release date for it's web-based Photosynth software, for later this year. The software is admitedly slow, after showing a demo off at a developers conference, but Microsoft say that 'You'll be able to walk or fly through a scene of photos, as if you are really there.' Details on how Photosynth works are yet unkown, but what is confirmed is that the software takes collections of images, analyses them for similarites and then constructs models of them in a constructed 3D space.
