PhotoSynth Lite - from Google

Travolution loves Microsoft's Photosynth, in a big, big way. The opportunities for the travel industry are enormous. And it is very cool!

When Mel Carson of MSN showcased it at a Travolution conference in late-2006, we were all duly awe-struck. Carson ran the reel again at the ABTA Convention in November 2007, when I presented with him.

So interesting to see today that Google acquisition Panoramio has developed its own photo-heavy, streaming system combined user added images.

It's live, taking real-time images from members, and definitely worth playing around with.

Excellent examples include the Empire State Building and the Taj Mahal [click on the 'Look Around' button on the left-hand side under the main image after the jump].

Have you tried the beta tech preview version of Photosynth yet? I've just downloaded it tonight to have a play around with it.
