Submission + - Lytro reduced to Camera Hack (

akumpf writes: "Here's a 1-day hack, hot off the chaos collective's workbench.

The team was amused by the Lytro camera (the one that lets you adjust the focus of pictures after you take them), but the price tag was a bit steep for their tinkering budget.

So they built a hack that lets you create the same kind of images with a basic digital camera!

They took the functionality of the $400 Lytro camera and made it so that anyone with the internet and an SLR can make pictures with an interactive focal point all on their own.

Full writeup and lots of images to play around with it here:"
