Casio has taken digital camera form factor to its inevitable "why didn't we think of this" conclusion with the Tryx. It's a digital camera that pops out of a frame, enabling it to swivel 360-degrees in both portrait and landscape mode and every way in between. This two-way swivel actually means a multitude of positions and angles, freeing the casual snapper from just pointing and shooting.
Well, this is nuts: engineers at MIT have developed a camera that can capture images of things not in its field of view. Yes, it's a camera that can see around corners, no mirrors involved.

The entire entertainment industry sees 3D as the next big thing, but one issue holding it back is it's difficult to produce. Typically, you need to shoot footage with two different cameras (or at least two different lenses) simultaneously. Even with today's sophisticated systems, that's a tall order. But is there a way to get good 3D material from a single lens? One Canadian company says yes.
DSLR cameras are pretty bulky devices, what with their detachable lenses and serious image sensors. But not this one, the Mini Model Camera. It's just 1/6th the size of your standard DSLR. It even comes with a set of detachable lenses!
