Testing Seadragon from Microsoft Live Labs

Thought I would give Seadragon a try. Seadragon is a technology from Microsoft Live Labs that lets you zoom in and pan around images from the Web. Images could have lots of text or just really big photos. This technology could be extremely useful in rendering large images with lots of text. Imagine a single image with the entire text of a book and using Seadragon to read that book.

In testing our Seadragon here, I uploaded a panoramic shot I took while visiting the U.S.S. Hornet in Oakland, CA this summer. This panoramic shot was created from a series of shots using Windows Live Photo Gallery.

Pretty damn cool.
