Seadragon knits together gigabytes of images into a blazing fast collage, The presenter zoomed in and out several orders of magnitude instantly. They then tie Seadragon into a second app (Photosynth), which collates a series of digital images in 3D space, and you can scan and scroll thru a 3d view that's apparently generated automatically from the 2D photos you feed it. It's a 3D version of your photo stich application, which you can scroll thru, zoom in and out just as fast as the Seadragon application.
Absolutely amazing stuff.
