U.S. Researchers at the Stanford University are working on a 3 Dimensional camera with 12,616 lenses having 3 megapixel units with a total of 2,229,696 sensors to create a sort of super 3D effect, this 3D camera will not be only taking the pictures but it will also be recording the distances of various parameters in the photograph. The new technology could find applications in areas like 3D printing and virtual games on the internet.
By the use of this technology the photographs taken will be in proper focus and the details will be very high. If you had to point such a 3D camera at someone’s face, it would not only take a photo of that person, but also record the distances to the subject’s eyes, nose ears, chin and such like.
The group of researchers led by Professor Abbas El Gamal, plan to integrate a tiny lens on each array of 16×16 pixels (256 pixels) which would then result in a total of 12,616 lenses.
“It’s like having a lot of cameras on a single chip,” said Keith Fife, a graduate student working with El Gamal.
Here comes the interesting part the researchers working on the Camera technology said that this 3D digital camera may cost less than our existing digital cameras.
