Seadragon – gem of Microsoft Live Labs

Seadragon software is great team that produced technology which change the way we look on things that appears on screen. Seadragon is now part of Microsoft, aqusitioned Feb 07.

They state four “promises” and they are :
1. Speed of navigation is independent of the size or number of objects.
2. Performance depends only on the ratio of bandwidth to pixels on the screen.
3. Transitions are smooth as butter.
4. Scaling is near perfect and rapid for screens of any resolution.

Seadragon is randering power behind Microsoft Photosynth I’ve already blogged about. After watching Blaise Aguera y Arcas presentation I am impressed by Seadragon.
