Back in late September, I told you about Movi.Kanti.Revo, a client-side-rendered, HTML5- and web browser-based, and gesture interface-implemented application co-developed by Cirque du Soleil and Google. For the moment, at least, Movi.Kanti.Revo is only supported on conventional computers (along with a limited set of browsers, at that).
Google didn't evolve the project name when incrementing from Android 4.1 (introduced in late June) to the more recent and latest 4.2 release. However, the newest "Jelly Bean" version makes several notable imaging improvements that will be of interest to embedded vision application developers.
One of the more impressive embedded vision implementations (IMHO) that I've come across, albeit one of the more potentially troubling from a copyright infringement perspective, is Google's book-scanning, de-warping system.
As I've discussed in a number of past news writeups, Microsoft has now broadened its vision for the Kinect 3-D camera (and microphone array) system beyond its Xbox 360 game console origins to also encompass computer interfaces, thereby formalizing a relationship that existed from Kinect's earliest days courtesy of the hacker community.
