Touching Objects in Videos: The Next Pokémon Go Update?

Interactive Dynamic Video is the revolutionary technology developed by Boston’s MIT that makes it possible to touch objects in videos. Mixing computer science and artificial intelligence, and using algorithms and regular cameras, the concept improves on augmented reality. Users can manipulate real objects in the video using their finger or a computer mouse. The technique uses tiny vibrations emitted by dynamic images, which are analyzed via the algorithm. The system uses that information to predict how the object would react in a given set of circumstances. This new technique, if applied to Pokémon Go, would make the game even more real to the user. For example, instead of just flying over a bush, a Pokémon could interact with it and move its branches.
