If you create software that does the following: before video chatting, the camera needs to take a picture of the background without you or the chair you’re sitting in. Make sure you do NOT move the camera even slightly.After the snapshot you can start video chatting and the camera software will compare the snapshot of the background with the current image and subtract everything that was in the original snapshot (so the background (your messy room) will be removed completely but you’ll stay).
So until someone creates a cheap hybrid lens to take care of this problem we’re stuck with wide angle lenses in our cell phones and web cams.
Fix: Wait until hybrid lens technology becomes smaller and cheaper /or/ use software to try to remove the distortion in real time.
However, real-time video effects such as these are going to require some serious processing power, something that iphones and netbooks lack for now…Even if we are happy with the way we look… The right side is never a perfect mirror of the left.
However, years and years of looking in the mirror has made our mind “used to” the mirror version, so when we see the real “un-mirrored” version, like the webcam shows us, it surprises us.
Also, sometimes it’s not the cameras fault, if your room is dark or there’s a window behind you, there isn’t a camera in the world that’ll fix bad lighting. If you want a good logitech camera, it’ll cost you $80 bucks. Fix: Clean up your room /or/ use software to remove the background.
It’s actually possible to do this without a green screen.
Fix: Mirror our video feed playback when we see it, that way we’re not creeped out by it.
It’s no secret that we act different when we’re being watched.
But I recently started having semi-regular Skype sex, and realized that I hadn't felt this sexually inept since I was a terrified teenager.
