As I promised, In this post I’m going to show and explain, how this technology helped my progress in the creation of my new camera (x100).
“New technology could lead to devices that can spot people hidden from view or inspect components deep inside machines”
This is how .theguardian.com is presenting the new technology, but it’s actually more then that. This camera is a evolution from the last technology I’ve been talking about( camera that can see though skin), it opens doors, for developers, and helping people like me, understand the technology, how it works, and it helps me develop my idea, as it uses the same laser pulse, and the speed of light.
My X100, technology is a revolutionary camera, that is using the speed of light, and laser, to analyse the environment, in deep, as the technology will see though skin, walls, glass, and will then some of the pulse will be transported back to the camera, 100 to be exact. Why 100? , because we divided the human body, in 100 points,so the camera will focus on those points, wile creating the image back.
As the new technology, my camera at heart of the technique is the ability to build up images from light waves that are scattered off surfaces like walls in almost every direction.
You may ask what are the differences?
I can only explain that in a single word, ‘HOLOGRAPHY’ . X100 will be able to reflect a 3D hologram, when you watch your footage, or you can choose to look at the LCD screen on the camera.
Most ultra-fast imaging technologies aim to mitigate the effects of scattered light, focusing instead on just the first photons to reach the sensor. The difference here, says Raskar, “is that we actually exploit the scattered light”. ” It can record images every 2 picoseconds, the time it takes light to travel just 0.6 mm. So it can record the distance travelled by each photon with sub-millimetre precision”
This process will take several minutes, but in the futures researchers hope that, it will be reduced to 10 seconds says nature.com
X100, is a prototype, but a revolutionary way to see things differently, is based on two technologies that has been developed in 2012, and holograms which is already in the world in a 2D format and it uses a A4 scanner, extremetech.com says that,” The reason why you don’t see holograms everywhere is not because we don’t know how to make them, but because the technology required to do so is currently quite expensive.”
The scanner used by the team ( Japan’s Chiba University ) — a regular 4800 dpi A4 paper scanner, and it’s able to create images with a resolution of over two gigapixels. This technology is called scannergram, and you can see how it works in the picture below.
So far, the team used the rig to create 0.43-gigapixel holograms of tiny insects — a flea and an ant. Using a process the team called “band-limited double-step Fresnel refraction,” they were able to build the hologram in only 177 seconds, down from an original 350. ” says James Plafke for extremetech.
In my next post you will see how my camera works, a pich, and visuals, for how it will look like, using footage from other projects.
