So a couple of months ago I thought we were living in the future, but that’s all in the past.
Introducing Lytro with a new sensor called a “Light Field Sensor” that allows you to focus or change perspective after the pic has been taken.
I believe after this sensor is launched all flat 2D regular RBG sensors are going to be wiped out.

Kinect just launched a couple of days ago and just after three hours a video had been posted on boingboing.net of an open source driver hack to play around with it’s depth/RGB camera.
You can get the driver here.
Then, couple of days later a guy merges the power of both cameras to make a 3D video capture.
Using depth and RGB combined now he can measure the real world in the virtual world.
Adding instant augmented reality without any code printing, amazing!
