Lens-less camera emerges from metamaterials work

Collision avoidance systems could emerge from the lens-less imaging research. US scientists have used metamaterials to build the imaging system, which samples infra-red and microwave light. Metamaterials are materials that have properties purposefully designed rather than determined by their chemistry. The sensor also compresses the images it captures in contrast to current compression systems, which only squash images after they are taken.
