After watching the TED speech and demo from Blaise Aguera y Arcas, in which he demos the jaw dropping web app Photosynth, you'll never look at your photo albums again in the same way...
Not only does it push the boundaries of spacial interaction, but also that of human-interaction, photo sharing and community content population.
