Posted: Updated:

*See photos and video below*

ZDNet calls PhotoSketch, a new web-based program developed by a group of students in China, "quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen a computer do."

We couldn't agree more. The application takes a simple sketch (see screengrab below) and converts it into a detailed, digital, realistic, very cool photo.

How? Watch the video below and prepare to be amazed. Basically, the program takes the sketch (and the tags on it), scours the web for photos that match, then stitches them together using an algorithm.
