The article outlines the research conducted by computer companies, including Adobe and Intel, to develop a software that changes the appearance of moving objects as it passes through shadow or reflect new aspects in the U.S. It is considered one of the toughest and most important study conducted by the industry. Such software would determine what path the light in the scent would have taken to reach each pixel and if it identifies a reflective surface or an obstructing, it changes its pixel's color value accordingly. According to them, the technology can handle multiple shadows and reflections or even reflections of reflections and they foretold that it could reach consumers within five years.
