Researchers at Technical University of Ilmenau in Germany have developed “diminished reality†software that can delete an object from live, full-motion video.

The software first reduces the resolution of the object, removes the image, and improves the result (similar to using a smudge tool in Photoshop), then incrementally increases the resolution, improving the result, until the original resolution is restored.

I really didn't expect it to look so impressive, it's stunning.
Genius!

This isn't the object you are looking for...

lol I could see TV shows putting this to use. Mythbusters, for example, has a habit of trying to hide brand names. This software would make that a cakewalk for then, drive production costs down a bit, and hopefully increase budget for better booms.

I dunno... I would think this would be better if you had something to hide. The first thing that came to mind for me was law enforcement and something like this program's effect on video evidence. Obviously, it's not at a point where it would be a big deal now... but think of Photoshop 10 years ago and what it can do to a picture now... We're going to have to look at videos a lot closer now.
