greyscale extension for B-movie;)
More photorealistic pictures on VMU!
What is it?
Unfortunately, the Visual Memory screen (48x32) can only display black and white pixels. So the display quality is poor.
Now here comes the greyscale extension that is an attempt to let images and photos look more photorealistic on VMU! It utilizes two effects of vision for a better visual impression and uses B-movie;) compression to shrink size down. Tools are provided (on the right) to convert any arbitrary image or photo on PC into VMU format.
The visual impression of such an image depends on the source image (close-ups are more suited than very detailed pictures) and if the viewer has seen the original or not. I've tested my Greyscale demo slideshow with various people and some had problems, others not. Can you see me?
