The Matrix is here!

Ever tried to insert something into a scene in Photoshop? To do it really well is hard, especially if the scene contains complex lighting.

Their artificial scenes are so realistic that test subjects could not distinguish them from real photos. The slick video is below or you can watch it at Vimeo along with some notes.
