Microsoft's New Incredible Graphics Apps...

Back in March Microsoft ran a demo of their new digital photo app called Seadragon and coupled with Photosynth it is really quite amazing. You can dynamically browse gigabyte after gigabyte of online photos with the flick of a wrist. A one point during the demo the guy loads every page of Dickens's Bleak House onto his display, then zooms in on a single chapter. And a single paragraph. And a single word. He also creates a 3D image of Trafalgar Square from simple photos. Amazing.
