Flat cameras

Well, this is really cool. It's a flat camera. A camera sensor with a special mask in front of it that makes it possible to computationally deconvolve the sensor data into an image. Imagine credit-card-slim mobiles and mobile cameras with a very large image sensor for shooting in low light. Or front-facing cameras embedded into the display.

On a similar vein, this Light L16 thing looks pretty nifty: jam 16 small cameras into a smartphone and do computer vision magic to treat the ensemble as a single big sensor.
