The camera that can see around corners.

As I promised, In this post I’m going to  show and explain, how this technology helped my progress in the creation of my new camera  (x100).

“New technology could lead to devices that can spot people hidden from view or inspect components deep inside machines”

This is how .theguardian.com is presenting the new technology, but it’s actually more then that. This camera is a evolution from the  last technology I’ve been talking about( camera that can see though skin), it opens doors, for developers, and helping people like me, understand the technology, how it works, and  it helps me develop my idea, as it uses the same  laser  pulse, and the speed of light.

My X100,  technology   is a revolutionary camera, that is using the speed of light, and laser, to  analyse the environment, in deep, as the technology will see though skin, walls, glass, and will then  some of the pulse will be transported back to the camera, 100 to be exact.  Why 100? , because  we divided the human body,  in 100 points,so the camera will focus on those points, wile creating the image back.  

As the new technology, my camera  at heart of the technique is the ability to build up images from light waves that are scattered off surfaces like walls in almost every direction. 

You may ask what are the differences?

I can only explain that in a single word, ‘HOLOGRAPHY’ . X100 will be able to reflect a  3D hologram, when you watch your footage, or you can choose to  look at the LCD screen on the camera.

Most ultra-fast imaging technologies aim to mitigate the effects of scattered light, focusing instead on just the first photons to reach the sensor. The difference here, says Raskar, “is that we actually exploit the scattered light”. ” It can record images every 2 picoseconds, the time it takes light to travel just 0.6 mm. So it can record the distance travelled by each photon with sub-millimetre precision” 

This process will take several minutes, but in the futures researchers hope that, it will be reduced to 10 seconds says nature.com

X100, is a prototype, but a revolutionary way to see things differently, is based on two technologies that has been developed in 2012, and holograms which is already in the world in a 2D format and it uses a A4 scanner, extremetech.com says that,” The reason why you don’t see holograms everywhere is not because we don’t know how to make them, but because the technology required to do so is currently quite expensive.” 

The scanner used by the team  ( Japan’s Chiba University ) — a regular 4800 dpi A4 paper scanner, and it’s able to create images with a resolution of over two gigapixels.  This technology is called scannergram, and you can see how it works in the picture below.

So far, the team used the rig to create 0.43-gigapixel holograms of tiny insects — a flea and an ant. Using a process the team called “band-limited double-step Fresnel refraction,” they were able to build the hologram in only 177 seconds, down from an original 350. ” says James Plafke for extremetech.

In my next post you will see how my camera works, a  pich, and visuals, for how it will look like, using  footage from other projects.

 

The camera that can see through skin

A camera that can see through skin and even frosted glass has been revealed.

So far in my posts, I’ve been talking about how art, influences my work, and the progress I’ve been,  to  innovate media, and   create something that  can help the world, especially the  film world. I’ve been doing research to  see what is already  out-there, and how it can influence me in my development. It seems that the world is moving fast, and there are already  a few cameras that are able to use the speed of light, laser, and 3D, but there is nothing like my new camera.

A camera that can see through skin ,  has been revealed,to the world, by an Israel team. It uses natural light rather than lasers, ” The technique uses what is called a spatial light modulator to ‘undo’ the scattering that makes objects opaque or non-reflecting.”  says dailymail.co.uk  , and   Professor Yaron Silberberg of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, who led the research. said ‘If you want to look to see an embryo developing inside an egg but the eggshell scatters everything, or you want to look through the skin, scattering is the main enemy there, and time-of-flight is not a good solution,’ 

In the image below you can see the letter A with no scattering (top), behind scattering plastic (centre) and re-imaged with the new technique.

‘You can take a piece of wall and effectively turn it into a mirror, and this is the part that makes everybody raise an eyebrow,’ said Professor Silberberg.

The technique is likely to be first used for medical scanning, said MARK PRIGG .

This is something that  shows that my camera, will in the future be something that people can use, but till then  there are a lot of things that needs development.

This camera was the start for  a new inventions witch is  a camera that peers around corners, witch uses laser pulse and was a inspiration for my work. 

How my camera will look like, and the progress I’m going through, will be  shown in my  next post .

Till then I’m looking forward for your feedback, and comments .
