You’ve surely heard of the Lytro camera that let’s users focus the camera after taking the picture. While this new light field camera has the potential to radically change the way we take pictures, news today that the on-board sensor array also includes wireless and bluetooth capabilities means that it could also alter how we sense our world through imagery.
Just imagine an ongoing event with live feeds from multiple of these handheld imaging sensors where anyone not in attendance can grab these feeds and focus on the elements that interest them. The Lytro photo gallery gives you a sense of what you can do with these ‘living pictures’. With enough of these in use and connected to social media sharing, we’ll get a whole new sense of unfolding events.
