HyperCam, the new low-cost hyperspectral imaging camera developed by UW’s Ubiquitous Computing Lab and Microsoft Research, recently got some screen time of its own thanks to KING 5 and KOMO 4 news. Crews from our local NBC and ABC stations interviewed UW CSE Ph.D. student Mayank Goel, who demonstrated how HyperCam works and explained its potential commercial applications.
The HyperCam project has been in the limelight since it was announced last week. In addition to garnering significant media coverage, the project was selected as a runner-up for the Madrona Prize at our annual open house and poster session this past Tuesday.
Congratulations to Mayank and the entire HyperCam team – which includes Mayank’s fellow CSE Ph.D. students, Eric Whitmire and Alex Mariakakis; CSE+EE professor Shwetak Patel; and Microsoft Research contributors Scott Saponas, Neel Joshi, Dan Morris, Brian Guenter and Marcel Gavriliu – for all the well-deserved attention.
