One Reply to “Augmenting video with photographs”

  1. Wow. Remember that 3-D projection effect all the home videos in Minority Report had, where foreground objects jump out of the picture and leave a gap behind?

    Well, this system can calculate objects’ positions in 3D, and completely replace obscuring foreground objects with what’s behind them.

    So, given a suitable 3-D projector, it looks like this would be able to match Minority Report, and even go one better by filling in the gaps.

    CrunchGear estimates five years before this is commercially available. I say it’ll hit the Gimp in *two*, if liquid rescaling is anything to judge by.
