Qualcomm Sets Up a Sweet Snapdragon-powered Bullet Time Photo Booth

YouTube Preview Image

Qualcomm’s Snapdragon team released a video this morning, showing off what its team can do with 130 Snapdragon-powered HTC One smartphones. Bullet Time photo booth, anyone? Using a specially designed rig, each camera lights up when someone or something is taking place inside the booth. Once all is said and done, the images can be stitched together to give off the look of something you would see in The Matrix. It’s pretty neat to say the least. 

If you would like the Snapdragon Booth to come to your town, you can head to their website and vote for your city. Currently, Los Angeles and San Francisco are in the lead.

    this is so sick.

  • Leather interior repairs

    Nice posting of phones.

  • Scottyb112

    Pretty cool, but they should atleast give me one of those One’s!!

  • Dan-O

    So they used 130 phones. Does that mean the Nexus 5 comes out on the 130th of the month?

  • Icehunter

    Am I the only one that thought: “Yoga Flame!”?

  • Jarred Sutherland

    So let me get this straight. To showcase the “power” of their SoC … they bought over a hundred phones, set them up in that rig … to take a few pictures.

    Yes, because taking photos is exactly what I think of when I want to show off my computing performance. It is cool what they did .. but I don’t understand the connection to that showing off computing power.

      This is the first thing i thought as well. I am pretty sure we could do the same thing with the OG Droid. Would the quality of the pictures look the same? NO, but you would still get the same effect.

        OG Droid features a 5MP camera, One has a 4MP sensor. So, who knows what would look better :P /s

          Its not about the Megapixels, Duh remember!

    • Guest

      I know. You could put 130 gnex’s on there and get the same result. Maybe not as good picture quality, but still be able to pull it off.

      • epps720

        I see your point but 130 GNex’s taking action shots would be a blurry mess.

    • LionStone

      Well I don’t know if the One does or not but if its like the DNA, it can burst shots, full res up to 99 shots continuously w/ .2 sec in between shots, 4 fps. So don’t really know if thats how their getting their footage? But being able to fire that many shots continuously has to be able to warm up the processor a little bit :-)

      • Jarred Sutherland

        While the CPU does come into play with this, continuous shooting falls more on the storage (as can be seen with DSLR cameras with high burst rates, it depends on what storage medium you use).

  • Hector Delgado

    That’s ~$78,000 in HTC ONEs

  • Fable322

    How do I explain to my wife that I need 130 new phones for an experiment :(

    • mariagonzales325

      What Paula responded I am blown away that anybody can profit $5867 in four weeks on the computer. link W­W­W­.­W­O­R­K­S­77­.­C­O­M

  • David Narada Brown

    Pretty cool!

  • droidify

    I would have thought they would have used a phone with the 800

    • http://infotainmentempire.blogspot.com Rob

      They would, except all of the recently announced phones have a 600 in them (I’m looking at you, HTC One Max!!)

      • droidify

        Not my G2. She’s a beast.

  • bboyairwreck

    Okay… I just got 129 more HTC One’s to go!

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    They could have used a better phone than the HTC One. But HTC does need the money desperately.

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Qualcomm accounted for all of HTC’s 130 Q3 device purchases? lol

      • StuckOnVerizonForever

        Every little penny counts lol unless they bought them subsidized :P

        • DanSan

          they purchased them by signing up for AT&T Next plans.
