Edwin H Land Gave the People What They Wanted at a Price they Could Afford in an Instant  and the Retinex Theory

Polaroid LandEdwin Land known for his inventions and contributions to the fields of polarized light, instant photography and color vision. He has had an impact on the lives of millions of people and provided large scale employment in many countries for over fifty years. The Polaroid Corporation, which Land founded, may continue to do so for many more. He mastered the art of giving the people what they wanted at a price they could afford. He has had few peers in the advancement and application of natural science to everyday life. Land’s achievements spanned the disciplines of art, science, technology and commerce. In the field of photography, Land developed cameras and associated films that produce nearly instantaneous dry pictures directly from the camera. He mastered the complex photochemical science that gave neutral or colored, continuous-tone, instantaneous photographs.


The Retinex Theory

This effect was described in 1971 by Edwin H. Land, who then formulated the retinex theory to explain it. The word retinex is formed from retina and cortex, suggesting that both the eye and the brain are involved.

Retinex TheoryThe effect can be demonstrated as follows. A display called a “Mondrian” (after Piet Mondrian whose paintings are similar) consisting of numerous colored patches is shown to a person. The display is illuminated by three white lights, one projected through a red filter, one projected through a green filter, and one projected through a blue filter. The person is asked to adjust the intensity of the lights so that a particular patch in the display appears white. The experimenter then measures the intensities of red, green, and blue light reflected from this white-appearing patch. Then the experimenter asks the person to identify the color of a neighboring patch, which, for example, appears green. Then the experimenter adjusts the lights so that the intensities of red, blue, and green light reflected from the green patch are the same as were originally measured from the white patch. The person shows color constancy in that the green patch continues to appear green, the white patch continues to appear white, and all the remaining patches continue to have their original colors.

Color constancy is a desirable feature of computer vision, and many algorithms have been developed for this purpose. These include several retinex algorithms.[7] These algorithms receive as input the red/green/blue values of each pixel of the image and attempt to estimate the reflectance of each point.

The United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day

In 1985, the United Nations General Assembly declared the first Monday in October to be World Habitat Day, in recognition of the basic need for adequate shelter.

This year, World Habitat Day is Monday, Oct. 1. About 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing around the world, and about 100 million are homeless. The purpose of World Habitat Day is to call attention to the desperate need for adequate housing for everyone. Please join us in observing World Habitat Day 2012 with Habitat for Humanity homeowners, volunteers, sponsors and leaders all around the world.

Retro Vintage Bazaar supports this effort on many levels (since the mid-eighties), so please support this cause anyway you can – donate, volunteer, promote and get involved.
