Shoot dynamic panoramas with FlexCam flexible camera
Human Media Lab at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario is out with a very intuitive way to click panoramic images with the FlexCam. This flexible camera system that has an array of three camera embedded on its front side, can be bend to change the field of view according to the need of the frame created for a dynamic re-configuring of the image. This contraction and expansion of the field of view is displayed on the Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) photographic viewfinder display allowing the user to view colored stream of the picture that is going to be clicked. This is done by the degree of flexion in the display and a special software which blends the images to give one continuous image which can be clicked by the user.
Although the video below that shows FlexCam in action has been compiled back in 2012 but it wasn’t seen earlier anywhere. So have a look at the new way of clicking dynamic panoramas using this flexible camera array.
