Computational Photography

Last week I saw Ramesh Raskar’s TED Talk “Imaging at a trillion frames per second” on computational photography. It was pretty incredible as he explained how computational photography could be used as sensors to sense something coming to prevent accidents, like a car coming around the corner. Or could be used in the healthcare and medical world to detect blockage in organs. I love how Raskar ended the TED Talk with:

“We should stop obsessing about the megapixels in cameras and start focusing on the next dimension in imaging; it’s about time.”
