Using similar technology as stitched images to create 3D panoramas in QTVR, Yellowbird has developed their own Google Street-like camera to record video in panorama.
The only way to get how awesome this is by experiencing it. Enjoy!

Have you ever used YouTube to DJ at a party and found frustrating having to change among windows while searching for the next song?
Basically, if you are listening to a song on YouTube, you cannot search for another song within the same window without interrupting that song, unless you open another window. Not that that is a real issue for most people, but for some (like me) it is a little annoyance. Anyway, I decided to take a break from coding last week and decided to .. code some more, but this time, for leisure not for work (and one day I’ll get a life too.. hehe).
I started coding last Monday and yesterday I finished Ibizaah!.
Ibizaah! lets you search and play YouTube videos at the same time within the same window. You can also add your search results to a left or right playlist, cross fade sound across videos, and reorder playlist order by drag and drop.
Eventually, I would like to allow users to save their playlists, share them, and even load them from their YouTube accounts.
Go give it a spin at the next party and let me know how it goes!

This is one of the best explanations I’ve seen for Google Wave, fun, short, concise.. koodos!
For all those that still don’t get the Twitter thing.. which includes me.
Very interesting talk about running an startup company.
Conocido como Piclens y en su nueva encarnacion como Cooliris, este nuevo plugin para Firefox, Safari, IE esta revolucionando la manera en la que millones de usarios estan navegando la internet.
Cooliris permite de forma sencilla navegar y buscar contenido (fotos, videos, flash) en la internet mediante una pared dinamica en 3D.
We are in the midst of a new paradigm in Internet Navigation. Cooliris is only a year old and is already changing the way millions navigate through rich media content over the Internet. Why? you really have to see it for yourself to understand. The experience puts anything before it to shame, forget about all the current internet browsers and dive into a sci-fi like 3D experience that cooliris can offer.
My prediction is than in about 2 years interactive 3D navigation is going to be the de facto way to surf the web and companies like Cooliris are going to rule the navigation market over all the existing 2D browsers such as Firefox, IE, Safari, etc..
Today, Cooliris is an addon to current browsers, soon it will be opposite or simply 2D browsing will be a thing of the past all together.
Cooliris is a new beast with limitations and is meant more for content browsing and discovery than for publishing, messaging, networking or shopping. As soon as these limitations are eliminated the game is over for the era of 2D browsing.
Check Cooliris and experience this new paradigm change for yourself -> http://www.cooliris.com/
