AbstractThe beginning of the 20th century was met with the invention that changed forever the way people saw the world. The invention, named the motion picture, was made using a technological breakthrough that enabled displaying pictures so fast (faster than 16 frames a second) that the human eyes perceived them as a single object - a movie. Now, in the beginning of the 21st century, it is fascinating to see that we are experiencing the arrival of another phenomenon related to video. This time it is due to the recent technological advances in computer and video hardware, which enable us to process video in real time (faster than 16 frames a second), opening the way for new vision-based applications and technologies.
