#71 New Microsoft technology – boggling

My brother, who oversees some Cisco hardware development, keeps me in the loop with some cutting edge technology.

He sent me a link about some cutting edge developments from Microsoft’s R&D department – Microsoft Live Labs. It’s a presentation showcasing how visual data can now be viewed, morphed and displayed. It has applications for social networking and collective online projects. Welcome to the future. It’s boggling.

The technology is brought to you in part by Seadragon who are developing ways to overcome limits of bandwidth and large amounts of data.

Photosynth, also discussed in the link above, is a revolutionary new way of accessing and collectively archiving photos and data on a global scale – enormous volumes of information at your fingertips.

Welcome to the future,
