A couple months ago I got a 6 megapixel digital camera. Later, I had it in my pocket, and having forgotten it was there, went for a swim in a creek. This is not that story.
A team of geeky photographers has just created a 4 gigapixel camera. That’s 4,000 megapixels. Not six. They call it the Gigapxl Project. Their pictures have absurd clarity. Objects not 5 inches high are photographed from 100 yards away, and you can zoom in on the photographs and see them clearly. It’s astounding. Please look.
Now, once they have a pocket-sized version of the beast you’ll see here, I’ll bite. As it is… you know… I don’t want to look like a tourist. But at least I couldn’t ruin it by forgetting it in my pocket.
