A new type of camera is being developed by the US based company Rambus. The thing about this camera is that a lens is missing and that makes a difference in the size. The smallest camera with lens is 1.5millimeters but the sensor of this invention is only 0.055 millimeters, that is smaller than a human hair.
Camera without lens
This camera does not make pretty pictures though, but can capture people and movements and measure distance. And that’s interesting.
Because with it you can capture motion in areas without hanging up huge cameras. But also in cars, you can place these cameras for example, to avoid collisions.
This technique is now also using regular cameras, but is quite expensive and requires a relatively large space. ” Rambus cannot make these sensors for a dollar a piece.
