An evaluation of Techniques for Selecting Moving Targets

Anyone who's tried to photograph a toddler knows that targeting moving objects is hard. Tyler Gunn, et. al. makes selection easier by enlarging the targets in the direction they travel. I think their Comet Tails design for generic targets is promising.

I'm interested in converting this design into one that would make photography easier, because this is a mass market problem. Below I made a sketch of what it might look like in the camera viewer while taking a photo. Maybe you could make a blurred trail of moving foreground objects. If you barely missed the subject and pressed the button while targeting the trail, your focus would still be on the subject. Or are trailing images of people just creepy?
