This camera helps you know what exactly is lurking behind the corner
It can be a pretty unsettling feeling, coming up to an intersection, not knowing what is around the corner. Or even worse when you don’t expect anything at all; that unknowing feeling can set you off. Fortunately now researchers from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, are working to have a shutter to be the only thing set off, giving you a accurate picture of what exactly is around that corner.
The camera they built works by capturing the timing/location of individual photons, which allows them to track objects moving out of sight. The only real thing this camera is dependent on is light.
