Imagine taking photos of a scenery… and the uploading it to the Internet and merge it with photos taken by others which were taken at the same location… creating a 3D imagery of a certain scene. Cool?
Imagine no more cos it’s now a reality.
Nokia betalabs has just launched the beta version of Nokia Image Space that does just as mentioned above. Haha.
You simply link your Flickr account to Image Space. You can then start browsing and sharing photos in Image Space and this way building a view to your part of the world. Your account, the privacy settings and contact lists are handled in Flickr. You see your Flickr contacts and those photos you have access to. Moreover, the comments, tags and photo descriptions can be viewed and edited in Image Space.
When there are enough photos of a given area which have been made publicly available, Image Space generates a 3D presentation from them. This feature will be ramped up in phases during the next two months, so please be patient. You can see some examples now at Helsinki and Tampere.
Currently Nokia Image Space app is compatible with N97 mini, Nokia 6210 Navigator, Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6720 Classic. Should work in S60 3.2 and 5.0 devices with inbuilt compass.
