Description

Times Square is one of the iconic spots in New York City, and one you have to see at night to truly appreciate.

According to Wikipedia: The theaters of Broadway and the huge number of animated neon and LED signs have long made it one of New York's iconic images, and a symbol of the intensely urban aspects of Manhattan. Times Square is the only neighborhood with zoning ordinances requiring building owners to display illuminated signs.The density of illuminated signs in Times Square now rivals that of Las Vegas. Officially, signs in Times Square are called "spectaculars", and the largest of them are called "jumbotrons."

Almost lost in this gaudy show of lights is the memorial to Francis P. Duffy, Chaplain of the 165th US Infantary that stands at the north end of Times Square. See if you can find it.

This is great. How to you print it or only on computer?

Photosynth doesn't support printing, and unless we take a "David Hockney" approach to planarizing the 3D, I don't think it ever will. That said, this synth is almost a panorama, so it probably could be printed if we took the images into a great stitcher like ICE (http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ICE/)

I have been running Ubuntu and w/Windows in VMware for a while and couldn't run this. I actually created a real XP install just to play with this software. It is freakin awesome. I see you calculate 3D points from the photos. Have people applied this tech to help a robot's understanding of it's surroundings? Also what happens if you apply it to each frame of videos from a video bank like YouTube?

Fiction: Just go to the "Create" part of the Web Site, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Conundrummer: TThanks for the props. The area in Computer Vision that we are using here is called Photogrammetry, and yes -- it can be used to estimate the distance to objects in your environment. Check out the great Wikipedia article on Photogrammetry. Video frames do synth quite well -- search for "video" to see lots of people's attempts...

The FPD challenge is a pretty clever and subtle one :)
I got it pretty quick, but it's actually reasonably well hidden.
