We've all heard of and seen Photoshop in action along with some of the amazing things it can do.

Now a German company's software can perform some very amazing things...IN REAL TIME!!

Video: Voodoo Software Removes Objects From Video In Real Time

Augmented reality is so passé. This German software is all about diminished reality – removing objects from the visual field. We've seen something similar for photos (we're reminded of Photoshop's content-aware fill), but this software can neatly delete any object from live, full-motion video.

The effect is achieved by an image synthesizer that reduces the image quality, removes the object, and then increases the image quality back up. This all happens within 40 milliseconds, fast enough that the viewer doesn’t notice any delay. As the camera moves, the system maintains the illusion through tracking algorithms and guesswork. It does seem to be thwarted by reflections though; a cell phone removed from a bathroom counter is still visible in the mirror.

Currently the software only runs on Windows, but the Technische Universität team is planning to develop it for Android in the near future, where it will likely be available for free. See the seemingly magical software in action below.

Wow impressive, the one on the center of the car wheel looked perfect to me.

Can we make all our politicians disappear with this technology  scratch-head

I can see this being used for sinister purposes within the news sector. Great tech though Smiley

There is a new tool in PS CS5 that removes objects. Prob the same algorithm. Pretty cool on real time video though.

Not sure of the use, other than vampire mirror shots.

I have had cs5 Master Suite for a while now, and I have not had a need for this tool yet. I'll have to try it out someday.
