Eighteen minutes with the new Lytro camera and its founder

Reprinted from my post on Google+.

I get a pretty good demo of the camera, then Ren Ng comes over (he’s the genius who developed this technology while at Stanford — he’s been working on this for eight years) and we have a chat about the technology.

If you are interested in this camera, you’ll want to check this out.

You can order yours at http://lytro.com

This is the camera that lets you refocus after you shoot images.

It also does 3D (they had a separate display that I didn’t shoot where I viewed those 3D images and they are pretty damn cool) — you will be able to decide after you shoot whether to display images in 2D or 3D, which is totally cool.

Hope you enjoy this look at this remarkable technology.
