the moment

Filed under: Uncategorized — ubikcan @ 4:10 pm

CNN is teaming with, well you, to create a Photosynth of “the moment” that Obama takes the oath of office on Tuesday. Photosynth can stitch together photographs from different angles and camera types to make one coherent 3D scene.

1. Take one photo of the moment when Obama takes the oath. If you have a digital camera with a zoom lens, take three photos (wide-angle, mid-zoom, full-zoom)

2. E-mail each photo as soon as possible to themoment@cnn.com (one photo per message, 10MB size limit). Don’t forget to include your name in the message if you’d like to appear in the list of the contributors. Please only send in photos you took yourself.

I am not necessarily a diehard Obama supporter and believe he must be kept honest by rigorous oversight (though joyous that our long national nightmare is nearly over), but this is indeed pretty cool.

More at this MS blog (possibly the first time I’ve ever linked to Microsoft). Here’s a “scale model rehearsal” if you can’t wait (free Photosynth dl req’d).
