UW’s and Microsoft’s HyperCam featured on KING 5 and KOMO 4 news

Mayank Goel demonstrates HyperCam

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.

Watch the KING 5 segment here and KOMO 4 segment here.

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.
