Photos taken through glass, say of the skyscrapers surrounding the one you're in, are often ruined by glare. That's why MIT Media Lab's Camera Culture Group is researching for ways to make a camera that can shoot clear photos through windows. The team developed a system that beams light onto whatever you want to shoot and measures the arrival times and the intensity of light reflected by objects, including glass. They used an ultrafast streak camera for the system's earlier iterations. But for this particular project, they used and modified a device with a depth sensor that's easy to find and buy: a Kinect camera.
