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.


www.newstarget.com... .

. 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 Big Brother may be soon immortal , and have an AI bug on ,
and IN every one of us ..... soon !?!?!!?

I'll never step on another ant again . It may incur a fee !

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..

A magnet won't screw up your phone.
Or a camera, for that matter.

Only spinning rust storage devices are susceptible to magnets.

Reminds me of a story I read a couple of years ago, (might even have been here on ATS) that detailed a similar device that recorded various data sets, and uploaded the information remotely to data centers.

It was said they were produced so small and in such great numbers, that they blanketed the entire planet and our bodies, inside and out.

Perhaps just fantasy, but interesting nonetheless. I'll see if I can dig it up when I get home.

You'd think this would be cause for RED ALERT across society... but to them they just see it as "woohoo, I'm on TV!", just like their perceptions of selling their souls to Facebook.

An electrical field might do it.

But will it record in 4K resolution?

I was really dreading the day thi s book became reality.


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.

Why build a microcamera that's so small, you can easily lose it. I think a microwave is enough for the job

Can you imagine a human society with zero privacy? Not just how you would react if it started tomorrow, but how it would be after about 10 years of no privacy.
What do you think that would be like? Is it gonna happen?

I think TV screens and computer screens are also? Hard drives? I guess I don't know..

i'm surprised more people aren't interested in this story..star and flag for you, good catch;

Gotta love that nano-tech.

And we only hear about the tip of the iceberg.



PS. Is this the link for your first quote?

This CMOS sensor with 3D-printed microlenses is designed to mimic predator vision

A couple of things -

most everyone is misreading the article, and

you can't build any sort of comm system the size of a grain of sand, so it's a bit useless for some sort of super ubiquitous spying.

And yes, I know there are "nanochips" (not really, there aren't) but a comm system is more than its smallest part. You can't make a small, efficient antenna. And there's a power issue, as in 'batteries that small don't work well either'.

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


About autonomous chemical powered nanobots

All sorts of things can go on in the field, but you still can't make teeny antennas work. Nor can you power them for any time at all.

The OP article's actually about something else, not individual grain of sand cameras.

Methinks its about swarms and nanobots that are, indeed, powered by using forces inside the human body. Fits with other stuff I've been monitoring - and is the latest in medical biotech. Just with a different twist.
