Andrew Pavlis sent me some information about the incredible Photosynth project Microsoft is developing. If they can get it to work, it’s amazing. They had a demo at TED2007

Impressed? I am. I was also excited to discover that my laptop will run their demo software. Boo-ya.

“It Was Quite a Ride”

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 4:59 pm

Universal Studios could use a new ride:

A 21-year-old man got the ride of a lifetime when his electric wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semitrailer and was pushed down a highway for several miles at about 50 mph.

He got the ride of his life.

I love the polite 9-1-1 call:

In a perplexed and deliberate voice, one caller said: “A semi-truck just came by, and he does not know it, but he has a gentleman on the front of his truck that’s in a wheelchair, and he’s pushing him down the road.”

In case you were wondering, the wheelchair survived too.
