They've probably already got something like it, but aren't telling anybody.

I often read Wired, and I found it strange that a "modern" techy publication should run an article with such lack of foresight......

Just a few years ago a 1 Megapixel camera was the wonder of the world. For the 16 M camera, mentioned there, to become commonplace surely we only have to wait a few more.

..... this is 2005, isn't it? What isn't done by a computer?

Interesting idea though. However, something tells me that it won't catch on yet. Maybe when they reduce it all to one mass-produced chip....then we'll have a 16Mp 3D camera on a cell-phone.

Ro,

we just have to wait for microsoft to buy them out. then, it will be mass produced. of course, then, it will only have 10,000 micro lenses, be XP based and you'll have to log in to register every time you want to shoot a picture.

Nah, I'll just wait for the java-based open-source bit-torrent download.

We can already see some of the technique's limitations from the three slides provided. The "synthesized" focus is not as sharp as the real one; in fact, it's quite soft in my opinion.

However, I can't wait to have something like this!
