Even from Photosynth's launch, I wanted to know if you would support other photographic constructs.

In time you did add support for spherical/cube panoramas and, only months prior to this, you've begun accepting true panoramic shots from the Theta 360 camera.

There are other cameras out there that take images designed with the third dimension in mind, whether that is something as simple as a stereo camera http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereo_camera (even available in handheld gaming systems like the Nintendo 3DS http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/features/#/3d-camera | http://zoom.it/T5NW4 ) which gives you stereo pairs to work from or something as esoteric as light field cameras like the Lytro https://www.lytro.com/ which give you visually flawless foreground/background transitions.

If you're serious about capturing the world in 3D, I'd like to see you embrace every kind of image with 3D in mind as input.
