The results in this video look impressive...

Anyone else doing depth-from-motion analysis?  What assumptions do you make about object size vs. depth?

The same idea was used by the Allies during WWII to extract 3D information from 2D photographs taken in aerial reconnaissance flights. Two photos of the same object shot with 6 degrees anular difference provided enough information about the height of an object on the ground.
