I’ll be forward and upfront with you dear reader. Today Parthenon immortalized in a 360º view of 140 photos which in plain English means that unless an alien council decides to destroy Earth and build a way for a hyperspace bypass or Microsoft kills itself and Photosynth, my 83% Synthy Parthenon will be available on the cloud forever.
Bill Gates, Microsoft Live Labs and the University of Washington people sit back and relax while watching the 3D Photosynth of the temple of the Greek goddess Athena. Details such as the Doric order are visible.
You need to download Silverlight to see the Parthenon Photosynth. Silverlight is free and installation only takes a few minutes worth of your time for one of the world’s greatest cultural monuments. Enjoy Acropolis and the Parthenon after the jump.
