TWiP Episode 460 – Lytro’s Multi‐Dimensional 40K Cinema Camera
Since the introduction of its “light-field” technology, Lytro has been on the forefront of computational photography. That’s the science of using algorithms to do cool and amazing things with captured light.
This time they’re upping the ante…. WAAAY up. With the introduction of the Lytro Cinema, a camera that the company says uses data on all of the available light in a photo to separate objects by depth and store them in a three-dimensional grid. The company has also announced Lytro Immerge, a camera that also uses Lytro’s patented light-field technology to produce cinematic VR for immersive storytelling.
Also in the news this week, Facebook announced that they have finally opened up the API for Facebook Live. Meaning developers can now tap into the service and create apps that stream directly to Facebook. And one of the first companies to integrate was DJI, the leader in the drone industry. DJI demonstrated the first Facebook Live stream from a flying drone!
