Interesting, meshes pictures you take into a 3D image.

Picture Cloud: poor-man's 3D photo rendering

While you wait for Microsoft to release its gabillion-dollar 3D photo
research project, Photosynth
<http://news.com.com/2061-10805_3-6100414.html> , you might want to
check out the one-person project, Picture Cloud
<http://www.picturecloud.com/> . Photosynth will attempt to place all
photos into a global context so that you can fly through them. Picture
Cloud just uses pictures you've taken while walking around an object and
mashes them together into kind of a poor man's QuickTime spinning view
of an object.

It's a cool service for showing off things you're trying to sell, such
as cars or clothes. Picture Cloud images look very easy to create--you
just drag your images into the site. However, the service doesn't yet do
any smart image processing. So if you take your walkaround shots out of
order, you'll ruin the illusion.

There's a free version of the service as well as a paid option that
gives you more resolution and longer storage life.
