+ - Lytro- Shift your perspective->

Submitted by RMB2
RMB2 (936187) writes "Lytro introduces new features, including (slightly) shifting the perspective of photos captured with their light field technology. Slight it may be, but it's enough to create "3D" photos.

I write "3D" in quotes because at this point it just refers to the cheesy stuff that has been highly over-marketed lately (seems to happen every 15 years or so). For more info on the real deal, check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integral_imaging Pair a light field camera with a display that can do the same and now we're talking."

pikine writes "As reported by BBC News, Fujitsu has developed a technology that encodes 12-bytes of information in a printed picture by skewing yellow hue, which is difficult to discern by human eye but fairly easy for camera phones to decode using software written in Java." The first target uses are promotional contests and competitions, not entirely unlike those game pieces that need to be viewed through a colored filter.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes. -- Dr. Warren Jackson, Director, UTCS
