Cool recent tech: Lifelike 3D, image detection, & more
I’m more than a little snowed under right now with preparations for next week’s announcement, but I wanted to share a few interesting finds:
- Photographers are always asking for better ways to prevent misuse of their works, and TinEye promises to help by using image-recognition techniques to find images in the wild. Ars Technica’s got details.
- I’m delighted to see that Cooliris, the very cool browser technology formerly known as PicLens (see previous raving), is available once again for Safari. I’d forgotten how much I missed it until it returned recently. The developers are also offering an embeddable Flash-powered version for use on your own sites.
- 3D technology is getting waaay too realistic these days. [Via Daniel Presedo & Zorana Gee] Tangentially related?: Disney Lab Unveils Its Latest Line Of Genetically Engineered Child Stars.
