Lensless Camera Takes Photos That Are Always In Focus
Bell Labs' prototype camera set to revolutionze the way cameras are built.
Bell Labs, Jersey have invented a camera that eschews the traditional glass lens that guides light to form images. The set up of a modern camera involves a glass lens that focuses light onto sensors to produce the best quality picture.
In Bell Labs’ prototype camera, the absence of a glass lens is used to maximize the utility of the data captured by the photoelectric sensors. The single-pixel prototype camera has a series of transparent openings in an LCD array through which light passes and strikes a RGB sensor. A computer controls and protects the data captured by the RGB sensor and puts out an image that is focused.
