Eulerian video magnification system

The Eulerian Video Magnification system developed by a team of CSAIL researchers to amplify and allow for analysis of subtle movements and variations in color in ordinary videos has been featured on The New York Times.
 
“A 30-second video of a newborn baby shows the infant silently snoozing in its crib, his breathing barely perceptible. But when the video is run through an algorithm that can amplify both movement and color, the baby’s face blinks crimson with each tiny heartbeat,” writes Erik Olsen of the work.
