The Company That May Change Photography Forever

Ina Fried has an interesting profile of Lytro, a start-up that’s releasing a digital camera containing some exciting new technology:

The breakthrough is a different type of sensor that captures what are known as light fields, basically all the light that is moving in all directions in the view of the camera. That offers several advantages over traditional photography, the most revolutionary of which is that photos no longer need to be focused before they are taken.
