Yes, i have found a new technology which was developed recently by Japanese Company Fujitsu. Have you ever imagine that you can use paper as touch screen. Yes, real paper where the technology detects your finger to touch with the real world. Fujitsu have break the boundary by developing a device which can detects hand gesture for it to interact with the real media automatically capture it into digital form. come let us see the video from Fujitsu.
"This system doesn't use any special hardware; it consists of just a device like an ordinary webcam, plus a commercial projector. Its capabilities are achieved by image processing technology," explains Taichi Murase, a researcher at Fujitsu's Media Service System Lab.
By the look of the video before, see how this technology would help us for any of our current work. Capturing image from paper photo is one of the highlight. Not only that, you can copy the whole text and save it into your memory.
Is this technology applicable for flat surface? No, even you can use it on curve surface. Shows that inside the video. You can copy the whole book surface into softcopy now.
For now, this is the "demonstration version" and Fujitsu research to develop the commercial version in 2014.
