Here is an awe inspiring application of technology. Like most of you, I like to keep up with technology but sometimes I encounter something that totally exceeds what I thought was possible. Possible at a practical level that is, rather than theoretical. The Microsoft ICE image panorama program is a good example. When I first saw it, it struck me as pure technological black magic.

I feel much the same about the Pix4D aerial 3D modeling program. It combines a pilot-less, terrain following model aircraft fitted with multiple cameras with GPS technology and advanced image processing software to automatically build complex 3D terrain maps. To see the Pix4D in action check out this video. And here is how the aerial part was accomplished. Friggin Stunning!
