Movie software reads Hitler's lips

Nov. 22, 2006 at 3:05 PM   |   Comments

LONDON, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- New software has made it possible to read the lips of Adolf Hitler in silent home movies of the German dictator filmed on the eve of World War II.

The technology has made it possible to capture Hitler's words in the footage, including platitudes for visiting children, flirtations with Eva Braun and even a snide remark about henchmen Heinrich Himmler and Hermann Goering.

The Telegraph said Wednesday that Hitler said of the portly Goering, "I looked at him across the dining table and then I knew that what they say was true, that pigs eat the flesh of their own."

These insights were made possible by newly developed software that recognizes the shapes the subject's mouth makes on film and matches them to sounds and to a dictionary and comes up with the words being spoken.
