A video from the Microsoft ProPhoto Summit went live on September 25, and reveals the integration between Seadragon and Microsoft Surface, an integration as natural as the user interface of the Redmond company's first commercial example of surface computing.

Seadragon is yet to be made available to the general public, as it remains an incubation project with Microsoft LiveLabs. However, technology from Seadragon has indeed made it into additional products developed by Microsoft, some of them already available. In this regard, both Photosynth and Silverlight Deep Zoom feature the bits and pieces from Seadragon. If you want the same hands-on experience as the one featured in the Seadragon and Silverlight video, minus the touch-computing capabilities of course, you can visit the Yosemite Extreme Panorama Project and navigate the 20 multi mega pixel panoramic images made available with the help of a mouse and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
