Techcrunch reports about Fotowoosh, a new service which turns any image into a 3-D model. This topic has remained a hot area of research for Computer Vision people for a long time. Microsoft is also working on a similar project - Photosynth which tries to create merge different images of same area to create a 3-D feel. However, the output of Fotowoosh looks much more appealing. This kind of research which was confined to academics is now getting the attention of industry and people are developing some interesting products!
