Adobe has developed a new plenoptic lens and a software that goes with it that makes blurred sections of photographs a thing of the past. The technology comes with just one additional piece of plenoptic lens to a camera setup. Plenoptic lenses are made of an array of micro-lenses that help to capture an image from multiple perspectives. This eventually means that you can pick on the area to focus and other areas to blur after the original picture is captured. The plenoptic lens is noted to be fit in between the original lens and the camera sensor.
The technology is currently only in its prototype stages and commercial use of the same appears to be some time away. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a video demo on what is on offer, check out this embed below.
