It's easy to spot an architect when you are in an interesting building. They're the ones that are always looking up with mouths agape. Now they might just blend in with the crowd as they take panoramic photos on their iPhones courtesy of Photosynth. The iPhone app takes a series of pictures and terms them into a stitched image that you can later view in either a 3-D panorama that you can zoom in and a 2D image that stitches the images together. The image quality is pretty amazing, especially when you consider that it's coming from a smart phone. You will need the Microsoft Silverlight plugin to view the images, but it's a small price to pay to relive a striking vacation spot or interesting bit of architecture.
About my blog
I like architecture. I want to write about it. As my first teacher in architecture school told on the very first day of school: "Architecture is a great hobby"
