Scalado Remove

Scalado have developed some pretty impressive technology that actually eliminates people. Not from the real world (that may be included in their next version) but at least from your photos.

You're probably familiar with the problem: you try to take a picture in a busy area, like a public square or a concert, and unwanted people keep getting into the shot. So you try to wait for the perfect moment when nobody is in the frame, and just at that moment, somebody on a bike rides through.

Instead of all that just use Scalado Remove. Using Scalado Remove you can now capture the shot anyway and simply let the app remove the people or objects (passing cars for example) you don't want in the picture!
Theoretically it should be a good way to eliminate photobombs.

The way Scalado Remove works is that it captures several images in a row and then it analyzes the differences in the different images to see what has changed. The app then highlights these difference so that you can just click on them to have them removed from the final image.

You can see it in action here:

The technology behind the app is quite similar to the technology that GroupShot use in their app, except GroupShot composes a composite image based on faces that you want to include, and Scalado Remove removes things you don't want in your final composite image.

The app is not out yet, they will be revealing it in a couple of weeks at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and will launch it for both iOS and Android soon.
