Depth Blur Webapps
A couple of projects that explore your photos taken with the recently updated Android camera app and it’s Depth Blur feature.
As mentioned last week, the new Android camera app can now compute depth maps with the taken image for photo manipulation, particularly to create depth-of-field like effects. Some coders have been playing around with this feature so that people can play around with the images.
DEPTHY (top GIF) by Rafał Lindemann is a lot smoother than some of the other attempts at the same thing - click an area to add focus and move the cursor to alter the ‘perspective’. [Link]
Depth data viewer by Jaume Sanchez Elias takes the data and attempts to display the image as a 3D scene. It isn’t a perfect representation and depends on how well the original photo was taken, but it certainly is interesting where the results are taken too. [Link]
FYI - For iOS users, it maybe worth checking out the Seene app which does something very similar
