This technology allows, among other things, the construction of a 2-dimensional constellation that fits a non-planar surface. The camera can then conform around a target.
Why is this interesting?
Allows to imagine an imaging system as efficient as a chameleon eye.
The camera can even be built on a flexible support.
Possibility of multi-view imaging and then recombining the images to generate information inaccessible by other means.
Sensor from 0.1 to 0.6 Megapixels
Individually controllable cameras and LEDs.
Multiplexing / routing and electronic hub to get the flow of all cameras.
