Description:


     In the near future, digital cameras will be smaller and smarter, and will be more ubiquitous. A camera will be embedded in places where it was considered to be impossible. When embedded in a basketball, people can see the game from the ball’s viewpoint. In sports, the ball is spinning, so is the camera. Even if images are captured from inside the ball, the acquired image is vigorously rotating and thus hard to see what is in there. With our technology, rotating and vibrating images can be stabilized so that people can comfortably watch the scene from inside the spinning ball or from trembling vehicle. Also, people can keep watching the player they like. This way, new kinds of visualization, entertainment, and artistic imagery might be possible.
