11 info viz: internet of things / places / images

I don't know how to embed the video, but have a go on your own. Live Labs is doing something pretty darn cool. Their Photosynth project blends the 'real' and 'virtual' worlds through patching together all the photographs they can get from all the places they can get to.

If this works well, how long before we can put realia in place of images to create a networked library of 'things' that are both real and virtual at the same time? Would these be spimes? Is this a real, practical step towards kirkyans?
