Seadragon and Photosynth: New ways of viewing digital images

A discussion on Imagelib pointed to a video (7:42 min.) that demonstrates Seadragon and Photosynth, both technologies for manipulating images. Both technologies are owned by Microsoft. I don't have the words to describe either technology, so I suggest that you watch the video.

As we continue to digitize, we need to be looking at the technologies being developed that may display our works. How people may view digitized materials may change in ways that we can't even imagine.

Thanks for an interesting post. Seadragon, in the first part of the video, is relevant to the recent launch of Google Newspapers.
