Let's say that you are touring a new city with your family. You stop in front of a famous monument and gather all the kids to take a picture, but because it's a popular spot, there are tons of people walking around in the background. Kind of ruins the picture, doesn't it? Short of some serious Photoshop talent, there isn't really a good way to get around this problem. But now, a company called Scalado has revealed software they call "Remove" which allows you to do just that - remove unwanted moving objects from an image.
Still not clear on what I mean? Check out the video demo (33-seconds):
I can't help but yell "THE FUTURE IS NOW" to myself when I see this.
There aren't a ton of details on how it works, but presumably it takes 2 pictures, and determines what's moving and what stays stationary. It then presents you to remove the objects that were moving, leaving behind only what's stationary - posing people included.
Update: Scalado emailed us and clarified that depending on the device, Remove takes between 5 and 10 pictures rather than 2.
At the moment, the company hasn't announced when (or where) we can expect to see devices with the Remove software on-board hit store shelves, but they will have live demos of Remove in action during MWC later this month.
