'RealityFlythrough' Delivers Ubiquitous Video
Computer scientists from the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) have developed a wireless application for ubiquitous video dubbed 'RealityFlythrough.'

By mixing images and video feeds from mobile cameras, the application dynamically creates a 3D virtual environment that remote viewers can explore. The software has already been tested by emergency response teams during the simulation of a terrorist attack. They had head-mounted wireless video cameras and GPS devices, and the control center was able to virtually explore the site of the disaster.

This technology could also be used for virtual tourism or virtual shopping, but one of the researchers had a 'cool' idea, delivering a driving experience on the Web. Instead of looking at a set of instructions telling you to turn left or right, imagine if you could 'fly' the drive before doing it. This overview contains other details, references and pictures.
