Ultrafast Camera Can Capture Light in Motion

Posted by | December 13, 2011

In the photography world, the faster your camera, the cooler you are. Meet the coolest boys on the block. MIT Media Lab researchers have created a camera that can pull down one-trillion with a goddamn T frames per second. Lemme tell you something, I’m an animator and photography enthusiast, and this thing makes me tingly in places I didn’t even know existed. What is a camera like this good for? Everything. Everything is better with high-speed pictures. Boing Boing has the story.

    One trillion frames per second linked to motion-capture software. A device like that wouldn’t have to watch you flail your arms like a muppet. It could catch the signals traveling through your nervous system in real time.

    Just an example.
