I know it´s been quite a while since I last posted here, but I haven’t really had any motivation to write anything. The other day I did however get stuck at Wikipedia and the rest of the internet for a while, so I figured I should update you with what I found this time. Since my last post was about camera history it’s almost a bit ironic that this post is about the future, and the next generation of cameras.
What I found is that there’s probably a big revolution coming in the world of cameras. We might think that the cameras has gotten very far, considering the technology we have for them in our phones for example. We can take slo-mo videos in ultra-high definitions, and the phone cameras can even recognize faces. But this is all just the beginning of a brand new era of cameras.
I read about a lot of things that were coming on the market, but there was one thing in particular that cought my attention. That thing was perhaps an extreme example, but it really does make you curious about what the future holds. The thing I’m talking about is called single pixle cameras, which is kind of the opposite to how regular cameras with a lot of pixels works. A single pixle camera needs a controlled light source, like for example a simple data projector that illuminates the scene one spot at a time. That way, you can then measure the amount of reflected light and add it all together to one single image.
A camera like that could be used to take photos through thick falliong snow or fog. It’s even possible to capture imager from light particles that doesn’t even interact with the photographed object. That would be a way to use the “quantum entanglement”, which is that two particles can be connected so that the same thing always happen to the both of them even though they are far apart. That could be very interesting when it comes to taking pictures of things that change depenting on the light. Like, would a retina photographed in the dark look the same as when photographed in the light?
To me, this sounds like some kind of sci-fi thing. I have a hard time keeping up with the developement of technology, so it’s difficult for me to understand that things like these are real. I even got blown away by the fact that you can play online casino in your phone yesterday when I read about casino on a site called casinonodeposit.co.uk. Isn’t it amazing how great technology is nowadays?
