Illum


Illium, the pro version of Lytro's light field system, is, IMHO, a stealth vehicle for video as the tech allows interactive focus to be done on every still shot taken with the camera, something that could be moved into video if there is enough compute power to do the deed, thus transforming video into an art form able to be manipulated in ways impossible to do with todays existing technology. From this perspective, it wouldn't surprise me if Apple bought Lytro because the science behind the tech is really cool and disruptive, notions that would have intrigued Steve Jobs to no end.
