I just received my signed copy of "Life of Pi" in the mail yesterday and I was so excited. If you haven't read this book, you should. I'm not a "reader", or a bibliophile of any kind. I can barely stand reading a news article. I can read a hundred pages of text on my computer each day, but if I read just a few pages of a book, I fall asleep within minutes... weird. This is one of the few books that I've started, completed, and ENJOYED! Anyway, since my current obsession is Photosynth, I decided to create a synth of the book even before reading a single word inside of it.

Photosynth... it's like crack for normal people.

I like the way the pointcloud combines both the closed and open version of the book.

I really like the idea, but better lighting would have preserved the detail in the spine and pages so that it didn't get blown out. The details would make the image more aesthetic and maybe help with the synth process. Great idea and execution though.

Yes, the synth would have benefited greatly by better photography. Next time, I think I'll adjust the aperature on my thruster-booters to allow more photon absorbtion... which should creat more ambient thermal pockets, thereby allowing the surface of the leather to "pop" with enlightenment. Yeah, I think I'll do that.

The Photosynth team is glad to have you! (For future reference, most thermal pockets require phase convergence reticulation in order to absorb more photons.)

I don't know if you guys check back on these comments or not... but I'm flattered that I've received multiple comments from members of the Photosynth team members. If you happen to read this, I'd like to thank you for creating, providing, and supporting one of the most captivating engines I've seen. Bravo...

You're welcome.

We're all super enthusiastic in the team about Photosynth, so whenever we see cool users of the technology we really want to encourage them. Keep up the good work!

Love how you can look at the cover and have the book open.

How long did it take for it to put it all together?! This is pretty cool!
Sphynctre Over 1 year ago
Thanks! This synth took about 10 minutes to shoot (take all the pictures) and about 1 hour to synth and upload. Thanks for asking.

Only ten minutes to take 217 Photos?! Whoah!
Sphynctre Over 1 year ago
Funny you mention that Cubby1996... now that I think about it, 217 photos in 10 minutes averages 1 photo every 2.76 seconds. I'm going to make a new estimate of 5-6 minutes to take the photos, and 1 hour to synth. My camera can do about 3 photos per second in good light, but I was probably shooting at more like 1 shot every second or two as I moved around the book.
