Taking Photos Round Corners (Developed at MIT)

This is crazy! A team of people at MIT have developed a camera that can take pictures round corners.

The pioneering technology uses the way light bounces off walls. None of us here at Psyft totally understand the science, but hey, like with illusionists, knowing how it’s done might detract from the magic.

Ramesh Raskar is credited with heading up the project. He works at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in a three-fold capacity as 1, Associate Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, 2, NEC Career Development Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, and 3, Co-Director of the Center for Future Storytelling – evidently a busy man, some might say a ‘visionary’ (excuse the pun!).
