Super Camera Lens: Adobe is moving into physical products!
Adobe makes at least two products many of us designers can’t live without, Photoshop and Illustrator. Both are software, of course, and we first heard tell of Adobe possibly moving into hardware courtesy of a Popular Science write-up back in April of ’07. The gewgaw in question was to be a sort of camera superlens, comprised of 19 lenses clustered together that would enable the user to change the focal length of a picture after it was taken using Adobe software.
Since then we’d heard nothing more about the Adobe Light-Field Lens, but a video has recently surfaced on techeblog indicating the lens is definitely real! Check out a short but sweet demo on the lens’ capabilities below.
