‘remove’ app by scalado lets users remove unwanted objects from photos

‘remove’, a smartphone app developed by mobile imaging technology innovators scalado, automatically highlights and removes unwanted objects like cars or passersby from a captured photo.

upon pressing the shutter button, the app actually snaps multiple pictures in a row in order to assess the ‘real’ background, without passersby. clicking ‘remove’ automatically displays the composited shot without the objects that the app has detected to be removable; users may also toggle to another screen that allows them to handselect which details to remove or keep from each frame. users may also load and retweak previous captures at any time.

currently in the prototype stages, the application will be released at mobile world congress 2012.
