Invisible Motion in Video
Magnifying hidden movement
About this video
Finding the Visible in the Invisible.
A team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has developed a computer program that reveals colours and movement invisible to the naked eye.
Known as Eulerian Video Magnification the amplification process reveals imperceptible changes including small motions and colour shifts in a baby's face in response to their heart beat.
The resaerch team have suggested a range of applications for the video technology, from rescuers revealing if someone is breathing to identifying tiny movements in machinery indicating possible breakdown.
