Lytro: New Photo Camera Technology

As the former CEO of LightCrafts, the creator of LightZone photo editing software, and an avid hobby photographer, we know quite a bit about photography. Lytro is great technology, a great company I don’t see.

After years of research at Stanford, Lytro has just gotten off the ground with a new “light field camera” that changes photography as we know it and allows you to establish focus and other aspects after the picture has been taken. We will do a more in-depth analysis when we get more information about the camera.

According to Mashable, Andreessen-Horowitz put about $50M in to fund its development, another deal subprime VC could never touch. Innovation is alive and well, if, as an investor, you put the right shingle on your door.

The sign of an intelligent nation is its willingness and ability to reinvent itself, upstream. Let’s inspire the world with new rigors of excellence we first and successfully apply to ourselves.
