Microsoft program turns 2D images into 3D

Microsoft has begun showing software called Photosynth that constructs a 3D model of a site after examining two-dimensional photos. After loading images into the system, Photosynth compares them for similarities, then reconstructs a 3D volume through which users can fly.

Microsoft plans to show Photosynth Wednesday at the Siggraph 2006 computer graphics conference in Boston, the company said . The software is the first major technology preview from Microsoft Live Labs.
