3D Camera With 12,616 Lenses
Taking a good picture is hard enough with a single lens, imagine using a camera that has over 12,600 lenses. Imagine the depth that this could give to por…umm, I mean...artistic photography of the female anatomy.
However, the digital camera being worked on at Stanford will contain thousands of tiny lenses, each a miniature camera unto itself. The aim is to produce an electronic "depth map" containing the distance from the camera to every object in the picture, a kind of super 3D, according to the researchers.
