Lytro Light Field Camera

light-field-camera

The ground-breaking and utterly unique Lytro Light Field Camera, as the name suggests, records the entire light field instead of just a 2D image. The upshot of this is that you can do incredible things like refocus your pictures after you’ve taken them. And because there’s no need for autofocus there’s no more shutter delays, so you can instantly capture the shot before the moment is gone. The extraordinary Perspective Shift feature allows you to interactively change your point of view in a photo after you’ve taken it. Drag the living picture around in any direction, it’s like you’re in a really short 3D movie!” w/ photos

Natural Volcanic Rock Pools

“Naturally formed from volcanic rock, the pools of Poca do Gomes are among the unique holiday destinations in Madeira, Portugal. These basaltic rock-hewn “pocas” or “puddles” were originally formed millions of years ago from volcanic eruptions. The island of Madeira itself was formed from a hotspot in the Earth’s crust of the African Tectonic Plate. Located in Ponta da Cruz in the Madeiran capital Funchal, this idyllic bath offers direct sea access through a picturesque man-made deck with steps leading to the ocean.” w/ photos

Land Rover calls it a “Transparent Bonnet,” and besides an image of the terrain, the display shows the angle of the front wheels, the degree of the slope the driver is traversing, and the SUV’s speed.” w/ photos + video
