MIT Media Lab scientists have designed a nano-camera that they say can yield 3D images of near-transparent or translucent objects at the speed of light. The device uses time-of-flight technology that measures an object's location based on the time it takes for light signals to bounce off a surface and return to the sensor, this article says. The technology costs only $500 to create and could have applications in medical imaging, researchers said.
