Toshiba's "Upscaling" Technology Is Uber-Cool!!

Wow...Once in a while, there comes a video so mind-bogglingly cool that pretty literally knocks your socks off and gets you glued to your monitor. This is definitely one of those videos!!

The technology is called Upscaling, or in more human terms, Timesculpture. Timesculpture is a stunning progression of the ‘bullet-time’ technique made famous by films such as, no prizes for guessing, The Matrix Trilogy. Rather than showing a 3-D rotation of a still moment, this groundbreaking new filming process manipulates moving snapshots of time using Toshiba technology, redefining cinematic human movement.

The shoot was made possible via the construction of a purpose-built camera rig, weighing over half a tonne and housing 200 Toshiba Gigashot HD camcorders. Over 20 Terabytes – 20,000 Gigabytes – of video data was used, taking over 336 continuous hours to process. And the whole production cost was $4.7 Million!! Whoosh!!

You simply have to watch this
