Today’s Awesome Thing Is: The Lytro Camera
What is it? It’s a camera that records all of the light in a picture. This means that (a) you get pictures that actually show what a scene really looked like, and (b) you can refocus the picture on pretty much anything within the frame. It is très cool; awesome, even. The above image should let you experience the technology. If not, you can check out the company’s image gallery. (You should check it out anyway, for more images.)
My tech-lust runneth high. But at just under $400 for the “cheap” model, it will be a while before I get one. (Plus, really? I do not need it. I have my iPhone, which takes 8MP photos, and a DSLR. The last thing I need is another camera.) Still, if you’re interested in new technology their site is well worth a look.
