    Hard to say if and when it'll come to photography, but it sounds very interesting!

    I can see it being adapted to cell phones and IP security cameras first and sooner than later. There are rumors of Apple working on an optical zoom lens for their phones. No doubt it would have to apply some of these same principles. But I think it would be really cool to see it in ILCs. The trick would be to convince a lens maker to give up 100 years of lens design experience!!
