German technology has yet again taken a great leap towards
another ground-breaking innovation in imaging and printing as it
launched its newest imaging tool no larger than a grain of salt.
. Because the four lenses are printed in one single step without
the necessity for any further assembling or alignment, this approach
allows for fast design iterations and can lead to a plethora of different
miniaturized multiaperture imaging systems with applications in fields
such as endoscopy, optical metrology, optical sensing, surveillance
drones, or security.
Getting inside the human body to have a look around is always
going to be invasive, but that doesn't mean more can't be done to
make things a little more comfortable. With this goal in mind,
German researchers have developed a complex lens system no
bigger than a grain of salt that fits inside a syringe. The imaging
tool could make for not just more productive medical imaging,
but tiny cameras for everything from drones to slimmer smartphones.

So what happens if I walk by one of these cameras with a super magnet, or something else like this? I know this could also mess up phones and other devices, but could it also potentially mess up these mini-cameras?
There must be someway to mess these things up..
When a brilliant, driven industrialist harnesses cutting-edge physics to enable people everywhere, at trivial cost, to see one another at all times—around every corner, through every wall—the result is the sudden and complete abolition of human privacy, forever. Then the same technology proves able to look backward in time as well. The Light of Other Days is a story that will change your view of what it is to be human.

There's been a lot going on in the field.
