TED: Femto Photography; A Trillion Frames Per Second

Ever heard of femto photography? In this amazing TED Talk, Professor Ramesh Raskar unveils a camera developed by he and his team in the media lab at MIT, that can photograph a subject at a trillion frames per second. The video above demonstrates the camera’s ability to even record light itself as it moves across the frame as well as how this photon-imaging technology may one day lead to cameras that can see ‘around’ corners as well as inside the body without X-Rays.
