Dynamic target tracking camera system keeps its eye on the ball #DigInfo

Dynamic target tracking camera system keeps its eye on the ball #DigInfo


This camera system can track fast moving
objects, keeping them in the center of the screen at all times. Currently under development by the
Ishikawa Oku Lab. at the University of Tokyo, this latest version captures
Full HD video and can be used outdoors. This device consists of two mirrors for pan and tilt, and a group of lenses. The Saccade mirrors can be controlled
at high speed, on the order of milliseconds. The mirrors move independently, so
this system doesn’t lose its high-speed response even if it’s connected
to a large, heavy camera. Also, by connecting a projector instead
of a recording device, images can be projected onto a fast-moving object. This could also be used in AR applications, showing interactive content on moving objects.

    and if playback was actually at 120+ frames per second this would matter. can you imagine the instant puke impulse if this was paired with Oculus Rift.

    The whole reason it has this ability is because it isn't moving a heavy mass, just a couple of mirrors a few degrees. Now if you put a laser on said aimbot, that's a different story.
