What if our reality was diminished (and we liked it!)?

Special thanks to @Malbonnington who tweeted about the latest innovation: diminished reality.  When I first saw the below video, I wondered at first if it was some sort of ironic parody of augmented reality.  I was very quickly proven wrong.  Developed by Jan Herling and Wolfgang Broll from Germany’s Ilmenau University of Technology in the Department of Virtual Worlds, diminished reality allows you to edit images in real time, as you’re filming them.  This is currently being developed for Android use and I’m sure we’ll be seeing it very soon integrated into other technology!
