Victoria Meyers architect (hMa) likes today's New York Times (December 14, 2011), featuring a new camera invented by MIT Media Lab scientist and MIT Professor Dr. Ramesh Raskar. 'Speed of Light Lingers In Face of New Camera' adds to conversations with Dr. Lene Hau of Harvard University's Physics Department. Victoria's book 'Designing with Light' included conversations about the physics of light with Dr. Lene Hau of Harvard University.
Dr. Raskar's new camera is capable of freeze framing light, and capturing how and where light has penetrated into objects that it is hitting. The camera offers a new way to study light and how it interacts with everyday objects. The applications will be profound. In addition, Dr. Raskar's goal is to develop another new type of camera, capable of bending around corners, in order to 'see' what is happening in other rooms and spaces, beyond what was 'fit' into the camera lens. Sounds amazing, and we are sitting on the edges of our seats to hear about new and future contributions to the science of Light by Dr. Raskar.
