Scalado “Remove” App to be Shown at MWC, Removing Unwanted Objects From Pictures Made Easy

The folks from Scalado reached out to inform us of a new product that they have in the works called “Remove.” It’s a camera app (yes, another one) that allows you to take a picture in a busy environment and then remove objects from it later that you may not have wanted to include. Think of a time when you wished that people would stop walking behind your kid as you attempt to snap a photo of them hugging a moose. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could quickly cut them from the shot? The demo video looks promising, however, the app is not available at this time. Their plan is to show it off at MWC in hopes of “wowing” attendees (probably OEMs too).

TouchRetouch does something similar if you are needing an app that performs similar duties, now.

    Man, I wish they could make an app like this that would remove the annoying station ID bugs in the lower right corner of my TV.

    what about clothing?

    c’mon, i can’t possibly be the ONLY person who thought that when they read the title

      if it does, i’ll be testing it out at hooters : )

  • Check out an app called Touch Retouch.  Does the same thing after taking the picture, is available now, and works great.

    I’m guessing that once the shot is set up, it records, then once it’s snapped, it can figure out what’s in the background based on previous images.

    Seems simple enough… surprised it hasn’t been done before.

  • When you said “remove app” I got excited and thought it would be to remove unwanted software 🙁

    Sounds like Photoshop’s content aware fill, for Android.

       I’d say more likely it takes two pictures.  You can only remove things that are moving, thus the background is visible in one of the two pictures.

         That makes sense, content aware fill does require quite a lot of processing power.

      Actually if you watch closely when it is removed it redraws.  You can see it on the statue on the left.  I notice the camera itself doesn’t move much so it might be recording the scene in a temp file until you finish removing objects.
