    That’s not all that impressive. The models are not really models, just flat planes extrapolated from the image. I’d bet with about 1 week I could crap something similar out without much trouble.

    Have you seen the Microsoft research project called photoSynth?

    That has much larger implications imho and is more impressive technically:
