No, silly, this isn’t about murder – it’s a program to remove people from a photo! Scalado has created a photo-taking system that allows you to selectively remove people in a photo. How does it work? It basically interpolates the “clean” version of the scene by watching the moving, live objects. It’s not rocket science, but it’s pretty cool.
They’ll be showing a working version at MWC in Barcelona this year – a major telecom event – and it should launch for iOS and Android soon. Quoth the press release:
"Scalado, a world-leading provider of high-performance imaging technologies, applications and services for the mobile industry, have today announced the release of a new revolutionizing product named Remove. Remove is a technology that automatically highlights and removes any unwanted object from a captured photo. It is the world’s first Object removal software to be released on a mobile device."
I think maybe I’ll use this to remove my friends from crowded scenes so they can stop mucking up my pictures.
