I've always thought the same about zooming in into pictures in the movies.

I recently saw an application which really got me thinking. The application I saw actually let's you do just that, zoom into pictures. The application was made for life science and it was used to display high resolution pictures. A single picture was around 1,5GB. I'm not sure if they used any compression or not. But it got me thinking that what you see in the movies isn't that impossible after all... it all depends on what resolution the picture was taken in...

Time to take stock. Go home with some office supplies.

Working...
