Microsoft Research technique removes image blur using components found in smartphones

Microsoft may be missing a few key targets in the computing realm, yes tablets and smartphones are what I’m alluding to, but their research division seems to come up with amazing techniques which could improve our daily lives…if they ever get put into use.

Microsoft Research will be presenting a software technique at SIGGRAPH 2010 which can deblur an image by, somehow, using the gyroscopes commonly found in smartphones today and their deconvolution algorithm to make those fuzzy images a thing of the past. Given the number of poorly taken images that are deleted every day this could conceivably rescue tons of information and, on a more personal level, memories.
