Draw A Photo Masterpiece With PhotoSketch

PhotoSketch: Internet Image Montage from tao chen on Vimeo.

Designed by a team at the National University of Singapore, PhotoSketch is the latest and greatest in image creation systems.  The full description of how it works can be found here, but the basic process is this:

Draw a basic object, name it and repeat this for any other objects you want in your picture, then name the background. PhotoSketch then searches the Internet for images that match the descriptions given, and after a bit of sorting out, you have all the elements necessary for seamless stitching.  The possibilities seem endless.  Check out the video!

This is getting so much buzz, the link is down as of  10/06/2009 1945 hrs EST.

I call shenanigans. This is nothing more than a concept video, not an example of the working software. As a Photoshop user, I find it very hard to believe that a program could properly select and key out a background behind a subject, much less do it cleanly. There are also several made-up words tossed in there to either indicate an actual new process they've invented, or throw noobs off the trail.
