Pelican Imaging gives us the future of the cameraphone


Pelican Imaging, a camera designer from Mountain View, CA, is hoping to revolutionize the cameraphone. They are doing so with the help of the recently announced prototype of an array camera for mobile devices. This design utilizes an "array" of small cameras rather than a single larger high-megapixel lens.




Pelican Imaging also expects the array to be capable of capturing 3D depth, gesture control and pre/post shot image interaction.



Would you guys be interested in such a phone ? Or better yet, in such a camera ? Let us know in the Comments Section !

Cool idea to get 3D pictures and gesture recognition with a cam.

That's brilliant! Hope the arrays don't get slightly bent when dropped. That would suck and lets face it, we've all dropped our shiny now phone once or twice.
Good info thanks

It all comes down to image quality. If the images are better than what is already out there then yes I would go with the array. It also has to hit the current price points as well.
