Panoramic video used in google maps

The demo videos in this website is really cool - drag the mouse and you can look
around while the video is playing:


The images are acquired using an 11 lens camera. I'll put some more
cool info here if I get some more time, but it is all in that website.

Face reconstruction

I decided to make a series of posts about computer vision demos and software related to my research in 3D reconstruction and camera calibration. The following is a video I had seen about a year ago and and I thought it was a hoax: It turns out that it is really a true working system. In fact this group from Germany have published in major conferences and journals in my area. They use techniques that I work with in my PhD. Yes -- they have to be restricted to a face model, thats how they get away with making this work. But they also recover everything from a single image. Another one of their video: And there even seems to be an end-product based on this idea: www.gizmoz.com. Brown is teaching a course where they will try to implement this face reconstruction system as a class project: www.cs.brown.edu/courses/cs296-4
