I’m writing this down, riiight here, because i just got bored of searching this in google everytime i need to run an experiment.
If you need to drop a mongo database, just fire the mongo shell and type:
A group of scientists have presented, early today, a “Hidden Motion Amplification” software. What is that?… well… its goal is quite simple: to amplify subtle movements that we cannot easily detect.
They achieve this goal by running mathematical calculations on every frame of a given video, and they exaggerate movements.
What is it good for?. Well… to begin with, this software allows you to check the heartbeat rate of a person, by simply analyzing his (or her) face. It’s pretty amazing to see how technology evolves into non-intrusive techniques: they don’t even need to touch you, to check how your heart is doing.
By seeing anything, and everything, with this new filter… we can discover “new” things, that have been always around us, but we have been unable, so far, to notice them.
If you’d like to read more about the subject, this is the project’s main website. They’ve even posted the source code. Beware… it’s written in MATLAB!.
