I don't know what's wrong with you guys, the author really nailed a lot of the issues I've had with this iPhone depth effect, specifically the mushing of specular highlights in background blur. Not only that but he presents clear steps of how to do that algorithmically. Apple should hire this guy right now, implementing that filter would immediately take the depth effect from "meh" to "really good".

Apple's always bragging about how much crazy CPU/GPU power these new phones have, well here's a perfect way to put that to use (they could do a rough, lower-res version for real-time preview and process the full image later).
