DimP – A Direct Manipulation Video Player

This is a very cool concept for online video manipulation: A Direct Manipulation Video Player
Here is the project site: DimP

Here is a quote that describes the concept.

DimP, a direct manipulation video player, lets users drag items on the video screen to move forward and back instead of just via a scroll bar on the bottom of the video. This is not only more fun, but it also allows users to scroll through video to where they want to be β€œat least two times faster,” In a paper presented by Pierre Dragicevic, Gonzalo Ramos, Jacobo Bibliowicz, Derek Nowrouzezahrai, Ravin Balakrishnan, Karan Singh from the University of Toronto, the authors present their method for browsing video by directly dragging content by β€œ1) automatically extracting motion data from videos; and 2) a new technique called relative flow dragging that lets users control video playback by moving objects of interest along their visual trajectory.”

Today I found the originators behind the animation technique that Sprint has been recently using in their 2007 campaign. PIKA PIKA is a art movement that was started in Japan. It uses a combination of long exposure stop motion photography and flashlights.
