One Trillion Frames Per Second

MIT Media Lab has done it again, produced another amazing scientific contraption that will be a game changer. So, what is it? A camera that can capture the movement of Photons. I'm no scientist, so view the video after the jump for an explanation.

Developed by MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture group in collaboration with Bawendi Lab in the Department of Chemistry at MIT, this camera has a laser pulse that lasts less than one trillionth of a second and is used as a flash. The light that is reflected from the objects being photographed is collected by the camera.

Pretty cool, huh? A lot of the scientific terminology, but some really cool possibilities, what do you think?

    @vandal, I think anything to do with photography has to do with Lomography ;) But that's the beauty of it, we can all have our opinions about what Lomography is.
