Google’s Autoflip Can Intelligently Crop Videos

Google has released an open-source tool, Autoflip, that could make bad cropping a thing of the past by intelligently reframing video to correctly fit alternate aspect ratios. In a blog post, Google’s AI team wrote that footage shot for television and desktop computers normally comes in a 16:9 or 4:3 format, but with mobile devices Read more about Google’s Autoflip Can Intelligently Crop Videos[…]

Delta and Misapplied Sciences introduce parallel reality – a display that shows different content to different people at the same time without augmentation

In a ritual I’ve undertaken at least a thousand times, I lift my head to consult an airport display and determine which gate my plane will depart from. Normally, that involves skimming through a sprawling list of flights to places I’m not going. This time, however, all I see is information meant just for me: Read more about Delta and Misapplied Sciences introduce parallel reality – a display that shows different content to different people at the same time without augmentation[…]

LEDs in routers, power strips, and more, can ship data to the LightAnchors AR smartphone app

A pentad of bit boffins have devised a way to integrate electronic objects into augmented reality applications using their existing visible light sources, like power lights and signal strength indicators, to transmit data. In a recent research paper, “LightAnchors: Appropriating Point Lights for Spatially-Anchored Augmented Reality Interfaces,” Carnegie Mellon computer scientists Karan Ahuja, Sujeath Pareddy, Read more about LEDs in routers, power strips, and more, can ship data to the LightAnchors AR smartphone app[…]

Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays

Researchers at Brigham Young University in Utah made something they’re calling an Optical Trap Display (OTD). The device traps a tiny opaque particle in mid-air using an invisible laser beam, then moves the beam around a preset path in free space. At the same time, it illuminates the particle with red, green, or blue lights. Read more about Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays[…]
