What could you do with this little imager?

Thermal Camera and Mona Lisa?

I can see the application of such camera to thermal camera. After all, you may not care about the sharpness of an image at night than know there is a heat object, potentially animal, there. What strike me is if Rambus is envision the picocam to be a thermal camera, why would they choose Mona Lisa as a sample image than picking a night vision in a park?

Multiple imagers for 3d and motion estimation are nice tricks. Think of similar apps where synthetic aperture radar uses movement and arrays to create much better resolution. Would work here too I think...

@chanj0: in addition to thermal imaging and in combination with that, there could be applications in motion sensing / detection for the PicoCam.

@Rick: I hope you got to attend interesting sessions at Trillion Sensors summit. I am looking forward to more from this event I could not attend.

thank you Rick, waiting for some news from teh trillion sensor summit...BTW, Rambus camera is a nice departure from memory IP litigation business they were doing while back

It sounds like combining the sensor with gratings turns this into essentially a "fly on the wall" camera system.. 8-)

With the granularity, multiple images with camera movement would be necessary to increase resolution, ..

We chose to demonstrate PicoCam with the Mona Lisa, rather than a direct IR natural image at night, for three reasons:  1) We wanted to compare our image quality with that reported by Gill et al. (2012), 2) We wanted the precise laboratory control of a computer-controlled display, and 3) The first PicoCam was built to be sensitive to visible light (rather than IR) for ease in manufacture and sensor transduction.  More extensive image reconstruction results at various wavelengths will be reported in the scholarly literature at the earliest opportunity.
