What if:

Microsoft joined their efforts with Google and combined PhotoSynth with Panoramio? This would really make an astonishing application.

I think the combination of the two technologies would mean the start of a whole new era in which people will start to experience the world in a whole new manner:

Public user content of the world available through Panoramio can be used to recreate it in a digital-online setting. This would mean a way to automatically digitizing all wonders of the world (being buildings, panorama) in full picture glory. It also means other users are given the change to experience such a location in three dimensions without ever going there.

Geez, i really hope to visit some more wonders of the world this way... Ofcourse after being there in person 8-)

What's you're opinion?

I agree with you Andy that this Photosynth stuff is very cool. My hope is that Google won't be far behind, or possibly ahead, in integrating this kind of technoloy with Picasa and Google Earth. Already there are signs they are integrating with the recent Picasa 2 Beta supporting georeferencing of photos with Google Earth. See this story.
