The instant camera goes digital with the Polaroid Socialmatic camera

Recently, Socialmatic LLC announced that they have an agreement with Polaroid to market a new-age instant camera, the Polaroid Socialmatic camera. This camera brings the old style of printing out photos directly from the camera into the digital age by allowing you to take a digital photograph, manipulate it with a variety of photo filters, and print it out (or share it on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter) via its touch screen. The Socialmatic camera will utilize the Android operating system.

Digital camera gives a bug's-eye view

Scientists at the University of Illinois have developed a digital camera that functions very similar to an insect's eye. The camera has 180 small lenses embedded in a curved mount, which enables it to capture high resolution panoramic photos with a continuous depth-of-field. The camera is made by inflating a flat layer of lenses into a hemispherical eye-shape, similar to eyes found in insects. This technology has a wide variety of possible applications, and could eventually be used in anything from surveillance systems to UAVs.
