Ramesh Raskar: Imaging at a trillion frames per second.

This photographic technology can see light actually move.
Ramesh Raskar presents femto-photography, a new type of imaging so fast it visualizes the world one trillion frames per second, so detailed it shows light itself in motion. This technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look “around” corners or see inside the body without X-rays.
Photography is about creating images by recording light. Ramesh Raskar and his team members have invented a camera that can photograph light itself as it moves at, well, the speed of light.
Well, I think as scientific discover and technological breakthrough continue to speed up, we are going to find it difficult to differentiated between emperical science and, well, magic. We can actual now see the speed of ligh!!!
