What do you think about: Eulerian Video Magnification framework? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    this morning I read an interesting online article (german language) about a new technology which is quite fascinating. It is about the Eulerian Video Magnification framework by MIT.

    Here are the words from the abstract of the original paper from the MIT scientists:

    "Our goal is to reveal temporal variations in videos that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye and display them in an indicative manner. Our method, which we call Eulerian Video Magnification, takes a standard video sequence as input, and applies spatial decomposition, followed by temporal filtering to the     frames. The resulting signal is then amplified to reveal hidden information. Using our method, we are able to visualize the flow of blood as it fills the face and also to amplify and reveal small motions. Our technique can run in real time to show phenomena occurring at temporal frequencies selected by the user."

    In order to get an impression about what this is all about, you might want to watch this (english/long), this (english/short) or this (german) video.

    So, what do you think about this technology/method concerning the Kinect For Windows device and sdk? How could this be useful in addition to and maybe combined with the kinect for windows technology?
