Computer Vision is everywhere...

As most of the android developers, I am a big fan of google nexus tablets and smartphones. Have been using a google nexus 4 for a while now and I am impressed by all kinds of cool stuff you can do with it. A number of cool applications are based on different computer vision techniques. In this post I will be discussing these applications.
To list just a few obvious ones, the android based smartphones have face recognition based unlocking, camera app which can pick up faces, creating panoramas, editing photos and using readings from a number of inertial sensors to stitch multiple picture into one 3D picture called Photo Sphere.
