Submission + - Computer vision tech grabs humans in real-time 3D

Tinkle writes: Toshiba's R&D Labs in Cambridge, UK, has developed a system capable of real-time 3D modelling of the human face and body — using a simple set of three different coloured lights. Simple it may be but the results are impressive. Commerical applications for computer vision technology look set to be huge — according professor Roberto Cipolla, interviewed in this article. On the horizon: cheap and easy digitised everyday objects for ecommerce, plus gesture-based interfaces — a la Natal — and in-car safety systems. Ultimately even driverless cars. "This is going to be the decade of computer vision," predicts Cipolla.
