This thing is unbelieveable! It meshes still images together in 3D space and lets you fly around through them.
Check it out on 10 AND Channel 9 for different perspectives on the product.
Now what I really want to see is navigating images using Play Anywhere. ;)
Lego came to Microsoft to show off their upcoming Lego Mindstorm NXT. This is very exciting stuff, including being able to use Microsoft Robotics Studio (MSRS) to program against the NXT. I wrote up an entry on 10 about it. You can except to see a video from us soon about it. CNET also posted an article about Lego's visit to Microsoft.
Oh yah and I immediately ordered my own NXT afterwards (with the wife's permission of course ;)). Once I start using MSRS to program against the NXT I'll post some code.
Jeff is talking over on his blog about "7 Day Software", which is a term he came up with a while back talking about how if he used a piece of software for 7 days and he didn't think it sucked, he knew he'd found a keeper.
I think Jeff has more patients than me. I usually use software for a few minutes and have usually already passed judgement on whether or not I will continue to use it. I'm all for second chances with new versions though. I guess we can all learn a thing or two from Jeff on this though. I'm guessing his method works a lot better. And with that thought, we are going to take this idea and put it up on 10 and share with you the software and services WE think is worth talking about and give YOU a place to share with us and your peers about what software and services you think are great!
Cool stuff...stay tuned! :)
If you'd like to see what the team that builds Channel 9 and 10 is like, check out the video we posted today.
We're working on getting our next release out the door in the next couple weeks. This will include a lot of great stuff we've been missing (such as forums) and some all new features. We're building up this code base to eventually take over Channel 9, so we can run on our custom home grown code base for our two big sites. This will allow us to update faster to both. Lots of AJAX'ie stuff on the way. We will also be starting a dev blog to walk through how we make decisions, then implement them so if that's you're cup o' tea, stay tuned.
P.S. I'm the shy, geeky dude on the far left.
