Amazing Seattle VR site, cool Photosynths

Pottling along from link to link so I can close all the windows cluttering my screen and get down to the rest of my to-do list that's underneath them, I came across these fantastic images/uses of images.

http://www.vrseattle.com/pages/vrview_fs.php?cat_id=956&vrs_id=vrs1999&ftype=flash is the bus that nearly tipped over onto I-5
http://www.vrseattle.com/ is a blog of recent images, you acn also go through by district. This isn't just oh look, tourist things: there's art galleries and insect safaris and local neighbourhoods at dusk - really immersive.

http://edition.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2009/44.president/inauguration/themoment/ is a PhotoSynth of the inauguration. Don't just look at people documenting the public moment: the third synth is people watching it on TV; the same image on the screen but in over 200 different homes. A really creative way to link images...

It's so cool to see something and click and jump out and see different views and zoom in to see different angles. THe VR panoramas are professional and beautiful; the PhotoSynths are lots of people doing what catches their attention and it being made into something more later. Both incredibly powerful tools.
