If you’ve been reading us awhile (and I mean a long while) then you might remember that two years ago we reported on the California start-up InVisage and their innovative QuantumFilm technology — essentially a layer of “quantum dots” that could make image sensors up to 4 times more sensitive to light. Well, now they’ve released a short video explaining the technology with as little geek-speak as possible.
Amusingly, back then we speculated that this technology could mean a dramatic improvement in camera phone technology and subsequent decrease in compact camera sales. We now know that nothing quantum was required to make that happen, but if the idea finally comes to full production fruition then it may just lead to another leap of quantum proportions for the camera phone.
