Oh, man, do I want one of these.

And

The Lytro only works with Macs, but Windows software is in development.

yeah, we knew this was coming. plenoptic cameras have always been theoretically possible...the issues have been in the 1. sensor and 2. processing. Everyone's been working on the tech...the question was who was going to be first to market...what remains to be seen is whether first commercial tech will work well enough.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I'd love to have one to mess around with. I already have a perfectly good Nikon DSLR & several lenses.

And if it means I have to look at fewer crappy/out-of-focus/underexposed camera-phone pictures all over the fucking place, I'm all for it.
