Steve Jobs Was Extremely Interested in Lytro Tecnology for Reinventing Camera! Inside Apple
Steve Jobs was a visionary legend who dreamed for reinventing textbooks, photography and television. He had a lot of plans for bringing some revolutionary changes in digital books, television and camera technology but it was his unfortunate death due to which world is still looking for “the next big thing” from Apple. Now, in an upcoming book “Inside Apple”, Adam Lashinsky, reveals that Steve Jobs was extremely interest in the Lytro’s technology and he met with the CEO of Lytro, the makers the first light field camera, to shape the initial working procedure for designing Lytro Camera to revolutionize photography.
The company’s CEO, Ren Ng, a brilliant computer scientist with a PhD from Stanford, immediately called Jobs, who picked up the phone and quickly said, “if you’re free this afternoon maybe we would could get together.” Ng, who is thirty-two, hurried to Palo Alto, showed Jobs a demo of Lytro’s technology, discussed cameras and product design with him, and, at Jobs’s request, agreed to send him an email outlining three things he’d like Lytro to do with Apple.
Interestingly enough, world’s first light field & focus free camera “Lytro” has been launched back in October 2011 and also has been honored for Popular Science’s 2011 Innovation of the Year. Moreover, Time magazine has included Lytro camera in its list of 50 best inventions of the last year.
Lytro camera has a magical feature of “first shoot then focus” and is used to capture the entire light field while shooting photos. The only drawback of Lytro’s technology is its limitations of a relatively low resolution of only 1.2 Megapixels (1080×1080) and comes without video recording ability.The intial version of Lytro camera (8GB) has a price tag of $399.
We think if Steve Jobs were alive, he would be the big fan of Lytro camera as it is the pioneer one in reinventing camera technology.
