CNN’s iReport to capture ‘the moment’

CNN is partnering with Microsoft to use its Photosynth technology to create what “we hope will be a breathtaking experience.”

Using its iReport brand, CNN is asking people at the inauguration in Washington, D.C., to snap photos of the ceremony and send them in. Those will then be combined with CNN’s own professional photos to create a sort of collaborative photo and 3D model.

The resulting image will be posted on, shown on CNN and archived at the Photosynth site. Read more about the technology over at Wikipedia.
