Slo-Mo Photography at 1 trillion frames per second

Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography, a new type of imaging so fast it visualizes the world one trillion frames per second, so detailed it shows light itself in motion. This technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look “around” corners or see inside the body without X-rays.


Thanks DJ

  1. That is amazing.
    I would think that using sound waves, instead of light waves, to “see” around corners would work just as well and would be far less expensive to produce a commercial product. Sound is so much slower, so you wouldn’t need a phento camera. The same way bats “see” with sound, we should be able to have computers emulate that technique.

    • We already do, it’s called Sonar – the point isn’t the practicality of using light to do so over other methods… the point is he’s f-cking using LIGHT to do that. O_o

  2. Jonco, I could have sworn I emailed you this link a week or two ago when I saw the video on TED talks. :/ oh well, maybe it didn’t go through.

    • I just checked my email. The last thing you sent me was the heros trance song on Feb 4th….. Unless you used a different name. I keep all email for at least a year.
