What Can You Do With 1 Trillion Frames/s?

If you're in the Boston area on April 10 or 11, plan to stop by the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to check out our Design & Manufacturing New England show. One of the highlights of the show is a keynote presentation by Ramesh Raskar, an Associate Professor at MIT. He will be giving a talk on high-speed imaging.

The title of Professor Raskar's talk is "The Capabilities of Super-High Speed Imaging." Clearly an expert on this topic, he holds more than 40 US patents and has won numerous awards for technological innovation, mostly in the field of imaging.

Raskar will delve into detail on femto-photography, a new type of imaging that's so fast it visualizes the world at one trillion frames/s, and is so detailed that it shows light itself in motion. He claims that this technology may someday be used to build cameras that can look "around" corners or see inside the body without x-rays.

In addition to professor Raskar's keynote, several product teardowns will take place at the event. This includes the iPad Mini, the Nexus 7, and other electronic devices.
