The more I learn about this "embedded vision" thing, it is fascinating. As Jeff Bier said during the interview, "We have only scratched the surface," as far as the embedded vision applications are concerned. What's your favorite "embedded vision" product?

These applications have been developing for some time, even if not strictly under the name of "embedded vision." What I'm most intrigued about is applying these techniques to privately owned medical devices, with optional communication to your doctor's office. Any number of tests and diagnoses should be doable this way, and potentially more reliable than current methods. Another application is self-driving cars. Just yesterday, I commented to my wife how in a few years, we won't believe how people could ever have been trusted to drive manually. How reckless of us!

I look forward to putting on a headset that will block my vision with displays that provide me a superset of what I could see without the headset. In several sci fi shows/movies, these have been imagined in various ways. Whether it's as "simple" as having a high def, heads up display in your head, giving you quantitative data on what you are seeing through the eyes of the headset. This would include Automatic IR/visual switching, etc. depending on the enviroment. Automatic zoom and macro capability. (that's right, fellow plus 40ers, no readers necessary!)

How good is digital pen i am curious? What if there is some bug and it can destroy the content. It can be a nightmare for reporters.

Is the first time I hear the term embedded-vision. I think is appropriate. It really is impressive the kind of app's that are coming out. Never thought it was possible to diagnose if you had a little too much alcohol to drink just by a camera scanning your eye. Wow! wait a minute... this app in the iphone and the iphone connected with the car through perhaps Bluetooth... then the iphone can stop the car from starting if the eyes show that the party was really hard. I think this could save lives, don't you?

In my opinion Embedded vision is a dangerous concept to come as a UI. Because you can do multitasking while listening music with your headphones, while taking on your microphone or the mobile but it is almost impossible if your eye gets engaged in something.

I may like to see an application where embedded vision can convert lip movements from far distance to spoken English or translate to other language of choice.

It has been a long-awaited dream for developers of audio speech analyser code to get help from lip-reading cues; these are a big help in improving accuracy of speech-to-text. Only now are we getting ubiquitous cameras and the CPU power to clarify what you are saying to your device. Very important for low-cost computers for non-literate societies.

One simple app that could be interesting would be a video meeting conferencing app with a camera that zoomed in on the speaking individual with moving lips. We do it subconsciously.
