Very cool new tech

One trillion frames per second… And a great +TED talk…

Reshared post from +Klaus Herrmann

1,000,000,000,000 Frames/Second Photography

How about that for a shutter speed, eh?

This is real rocket science: A camera that can film photons in flight. In doing this, it reaches towards the extreme outer edges of physics where weird relativistic effects take place.

Just as a comparison: If you would be filming a bullet flying through that bottle at 1,000,000,000,000 Frames/Second, you would have to watch a whole year to see it go through.

PS: Why they used a Coca Cola bottle to demonstrate this is beyond me, though! ;-)

    Sure, it's great. But do you want to keyword and post-process all those photos?

    It was a mind blowing talk even before it got to the photograph around the corner section. Incredible.

    Real life applications for that would be very interesting if it does not take a month to process data
