MIT's Patented Super Seeing Software Ready To Download

mikejuk (1801200) writes "A group of researchers at MIT CSAIL and Quanta Research Cambridge, MA applied very fundamental image processing techniques — spatial decomposition and temporal filtering — to standard video to show details that are normally very hard, if not impossible, to see. It works by tracking color variations in time at fixed locations in the image. If you point it at a human then you can see the blood flow as a color variation in the skin, you can see breathing patterns greatly exaggerated and you can see small vibrations as much larger movements.
The paper was presented about a year ago but now the MatLab software is available to download and try out. There is also a website where you can upload your own videos and see the result of processing. However the software isn't open source and there is a patent pending. So don't get any bright new ideas while trying the software out.
The MIT team are working on a smart phone app and it would make a killer Google Glass app — now that would be super vision."
