    "Once we’ve got the 3D pose of each photo, we compute the depth of each pixel in the reference photo using Multi-View Stereo algorithms. MVS works the way human stereo vision does: given the location of the same object in two different images, we can triangulate the 3D position of the object and compute the distance to it. How do we figure out which pixel in one image corresponds to a pixel in another image? MVS measures how similar they are -- on mobile devices, one particularly simple and efficient way is computing the Sum of Absolute Differences (SAD) of the RGB colors of the two ...

    For many of us, remembering the Nexus One is bringing back some good memories. Most of us still find this to be one of the greatest Android phones of all time, and if you're still using one or own one, please enjoy our jealousy for a couple of minutes. Sadly, the fact that the device didn't enjoy the benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich and is still stuck to Gingerbread is the main reason why we know that most of us were forced to move on to more powerful hardware. That said, one of the benefits of KitKat is the fact that it was designed to run on low-powered hardware. It was only a matter of ...

    We're still learning about all the goodies included with Google's latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat. Google touched on a couple of software features but probably the most interesting one, if you're a fan of taking and manipulating pictures, is the non-destructive photo editor. Google's own Nicolas Roard is making a short demo in the video below showing off the potential of the editor. We're looking at filters, effects, adjustments, and even reframing -- as a concept, similar to Nokia's Camera app. The editor will be included in the Android KitKat Gallery, as well as AOSP, so as long as ...

    The Nexus 5 has seen its share of coverage this week - not just at Pocketnow, but all across the internet. It's not just the newest major Android smartphone to see release; it's the once-a-year Nexus phone straight from Google. As such, it commands a degree of exclusive excitement, a hipsteresque appeal that merits a whole lot of media coverage - despite bolder devices hitting the market elsewhere. Much of the excitement for the Nexus 5 comes from owners of the current-generation Nexus 4, last winter's Googlephone Of The Moment that warranted almost the same level of feverish fanboyism. ...
