IMAGING AT A TRILLION FRAMES PER SECOND

”(…) Einstein would have loved to see this (…)” (Ramesh Raskar)

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has created a camera that can actually view light in motion. By firing trillions of pulses of light and syncing their cameras shutter, they can create a video that shows how light moves through space and reacts to mass. By recording this amazing detail, these cameras can actually see into objects and around corners by monitoring the way the light bounces off and around an object. (+)

Harold Edgerton would have loved this just as much as Albert Einstein - and military, too. Two sides of the story, as always. I’m very sure that this technology will have a big influence on this world.
