Live on Glass: always-on burst photography for better photos!
Picture Perfect

One of the great things about Glass is that the software automatically updates monthly, so Glass gets better every single month without you having to do a thing.  

So, with that in mind... here are a couple of highlights from this month’s new hotness on Glass:

1. Better photos on Glass
Today we’re releasing new software for the camera on Glass. It captures a rapid sequence of shots behind the scenes every time you press the camera button which, when combined, gives you a better picture than what you would get with a single shot. So, what does this new software mean for your pictures? Two things: you no longer have to be afraid of the dark; it'll detect low light situations and automatically capture a brighter, sharper picture. It'll also automatically take HDR pictures in bright scenes. Best of all, this software works even in tough situations where there are moving subjects.
 
It’s these kinds of useful improvements that make pictures on Glass even more magical. Anyway, it doesn’t make sense for you to read about it, right? Right, which is exactly why we’ve put together an album showcasing a ‘with and without’ of our favourite photos. Check them out and let us know what you think. Here's a link to the images in high-res: http://goo.gl/gRtVV

2. Photo captions 
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but we understand that you may want to add a few. So now, when sharing a photo, you’ll see a message inviting you to add a caption. When you see this, simply tap the touchpad, speak your caption, and voilà! A captioned photo is born. 

We’re starting to roll out these new updates now, as well as a number of other small improvements. We hope you enjoy them and look forward to hearing what you think. Until the next month...

After two years we've finally released Ceres Solver:
http://code.google.com/p/ceres-solver/

This is a key component of Street View. We're really happy to have released this. When we started writing Ceres, there was nothing available like it. It's state of the art; a real contribution to computer vision and other fields which need large scale nonlinear least squares.

Part of the reason I worked on this in my spare time (my real job at Google is something else) was to get it integrated in libmv (http://code.google.com/p/libmv) and subsequently integrated into Blender. This opens the door to many sophisticated tracking features, like autocalibration, rolling shutter, multi-shot solves, tripod solves, planar tracking, and more.
