Augmented Reality Maps (Bing)

Here’s the TED talk on upcoming Bing map features that has been in the news lately. In a nutshell, MS Worldwide Telescope and Flicker geotagged image integration with a demo of a live video overlay. It’s an impressive demonstration. The coolest bit is the Flickr image integration - it’s doing some kind of SIFT operation to get the Flickr image in the exact right place on the background imagery.


Unfortunately, when I head over to Bing Maps I get one of these.

Thank you, Microsoft. No luck trying to run it via Moonlight, Novell’s open source Silverlight implementation, either. Sigh.
