There's nothing more annoying than taking a photo and it getting ruined when a passerby steps into the shot just as you press click. And then you try again and it happens again. Considering all the cool things that cameras and camera apps can do now it was only a matter of time before someone came up with some kind of technology to solve this problem and erase unwanted background people. And this someone is the company Scalado. They have invented a new camera technology fittingly called "Remove" that will work with cameras and smart phones.
So you can basically take a photo without worrying about people walking past in the background. Once you have the photo you can simply remove any unwanted people or objects from the background by highlighting them without having to get to grips with the likes of Photoshop to create the perfect pic.
Pretty cool, huh? This will definitely come in handy during holidays to those world-famous attractions where you and the rest of the world are all vying to take clean, tourist-free photos (think Taj Mahal, the Great Wall, the Forbidden City).
The software works as an app. When you take a photo, the app actually takes several images in the row of the same photo and then creates a composite photo of the missing background, zapping unwanted objects away.
The technology is still in the development stages right now but it sounds like it could be something that's available in the not too distant future... It's the kind of thing all iPhone lovers will pounce on if it really works.
What do you reckon?
