the ted-talks are always a good source for inspiration and sometimes are just pure eyecandy and droolworthy innovations.
i’ve added them to my democracy-player but seldom take my time to watch all of them. the demo of photosynth and seadragon by Blaise Aguera y Arcas from microsoft research is amazing. now this should be combined with jeff hans multi-touch interface, and i’ll never leave my desk again…
sometimes even microsoft manages to do impressive stuff!
i couldn’t embed the original talk from ted.com, so i linked to the youtube-version. if you want to see the full eyecandy, go here: ted.com/talks/view/id/129
