7:42 Minutes of your Life well spent

While reading about the TED idea conference I stumbled over this video of a very impressive Microsoft presentation of the Seadragon and Photosynth technologies. Those who have been following the recent Microsoft Surface and Silverlight products might have heard about or looked at Photosynth, but Seadragon is another very impressive imaging technology which deals with quickly navigating, zooming, and panning through vast amount of image data without using a lot of bandwidth.

The video is only 7:42 minutes long and as I wrote in the blog post title time well spent. If it is any indicator of the quality of this presentation, Blaise Aguera y Arcas (the Microsoft presenter) was caught off guard by sudden applause during the presentation and even made a remark that this has never happened since he joined Microsoft…

Enough said, see for yourself!
