my face when Google releases a new camera app that does the same dense depth maps from two mono images that' I've spent the last couple of months coding...

"....They say the signal has a frequency of 37.5 kHz per second - the same as those emitted by the flight recorders..."

+BBC News you need to check your science. I'm pretty sure this is GCSE level stuff!

One of the first revolutionary big data problem solving software and companies! I'm happy to see their innovation.

Well that campaign backfired on them. Everyone was hyped up about a proper match using the latest robotic arms, computer vision and tracking algorithms. What we got instead was scripted Hollywood guff.

That was a very public lesson in managing expectations.

and the film team lying again in the making of video. That is a bad move of kuka.

Has anyone tried applying SFM to the hyperlapse sequences?
 
JavaScript hyper-lapse utility for Google Street View

You have to check this out. It is a tool for making awesome timelapses like this from google street view photos

Perspective matters

A recent posts from +Interesting Engineering shows the road space required to transport 60 people. It is meant to demonstrate how public transport and cycling reduces traffic. While true, the images they used to demonstrate this have worked to undermine their credibility.

The top image is the original which exaggerates the space taken up by cars, the image is taken from a different perspective and zoomed in.

The lower image is one that I've corrected. A perspective and scale correction was applied to align the buildings and overlaid it on the bus photo to give a more accurate comparison of the space required. It still illustrates the point but now it's more credible.

A while ago +Pierre Lothe, +Ross Kidson  and myself tried to reconstruct this high speed video recording in Tokyo at Shinjuku station ( http://vimeo.com/77489382 ) ...I know it's not hyperlapse, but I think it's still pretty cool data for SfM.

We just did feature based SfM without dense matching. Here a two screenshots of reconstructed camera trajectory and sparse SfM points:

Awful food, slow service, over priced. Avoid at all costs for food. I give it score of 1 for facilities simply because of the river side location.

Fantastic little zoo where we had the chance to touch and interact with many animals, well worth a trip out that way.

Brilliant trip, great thrill ride and an interesting way to see the harbour from a different perspective.

Fantastic pizza with a great view. Quite pricey but considering the location that's not unexpected.
