Coming to a camera near you?

Lens

Good for telecom applications (as they say) where you are working with only one wavelength of light from a laser. We have to wait and see if it can work with multiple frequencies at once.

Of course, for a digital camera, it only has to work with three frequencies at once. The light capturing wells have a Bayer filter in front of them, so each well sees only one specific red, green, or blue wavelength.

Or 3 lenses with adjustable range focus, a sort of tri-ocular vision... 3-colour 3D? Hmmm...
