the REAL Hokie Bird and I at the USC game 2004
For some odd reason, I own a full size Hokie
Bird costume. I actually made it to compete in a costume
competition to get a trip to the Sugar Bowl when Virginia Tech went
for the national championship, but lost to a girl in a glittery prom
outfit with a bird head, a guy dressed as a sugar bowl, and
eventually to two guys in an egg crate mattress cut out in the shape
of a VT. I was disappointed, but I still manage to drag the 'ol
outfit out now and again.
I actually receive many inquiries about my costume through this website. FYI, I don't rent it out and the boss says I can't go play dress up for you :(. I'll also try to post some information one day in case you would like to make a Hokie Bird costume of your own.

Microsoft Photo Tourism - WOW, this is neat! Let's say you have a landmark that lots of people take pictures of. This software then finds the common points of this landmark and allows you to view that landmark from those different views. A MUST check out! The image below is of the Trevi Fountain. The little boxes at the bottom of the screen are photos that you can "look through". http://phototour.cs.washington.edu/ This technology has now been integrated into Bing Maps.
Watch this video for a "tour" of the product.
They've updated the Photo Tourism into PhotoSynth and now you can create this kind of stuff yourself! http://photosynth.net
