This amazing new technology from MIT lets you see a pulse (for example) by comparing slight changes in color at the pixel level. It’s crazy, but you can see blood flow and whether a baby is breathing. You could also presumably use this to tell if something is human or android. The code is posted online if you have MatLab, or you can upload your own video here and test it out.
It’s weird how much further we could go with imaging. There are already cameras that let you change the focus after (Lytro) and the new Blackberry 10 has a time shift mode that lets you rewind part of a photo (a face in a group shot) to get the perfect expression without changing the rest of the frame. And this stuff is all out there and shipping. Cool.
