I was looking onto a technology during my spare time and came across this. Diminished Reality. This shows that what we watch even when live can be manipulated.
We all have seen UFO's placed in pics and videos, seen the Planes crash into the Twin towers but now there is a "REAL TIME" piece of software that can completely remove an object from a live feed.
This is how it works, short version:
The software uses a live video feed. After roughly selecting the object using a touch pad, the program reduces the quality of the frames coming from the camera. It then removes the object from the reduced quality version. Once this is done, it improves the quality of the result and blends it with the actual frame. This is then returned to the viewer in just 41ms. 41 ms is unbelievably quick. At that speed, the human brain doesn’t notice any delay. It is as if the object is not even there.
This technology could of been used in Live NEWS feeds removing UFO's, removing a missile fired at the Twin towers. Remove anything as it is fed direct to us on our TV's.
this piece of software was invented by Dr. Wolfgang Broll from the Department of Virtual Worlds and Digital Games at the Technische Universität in Ilmenau in Germany. He has aptly named it the Diminishing Reality System.
Watch the Video please. Ironic I am asking you to watch a video. yes I know.
