Toshiba Camera

According to recent reports, Toshiba is working on a camera for smartphones and tablets that will allow users to focus on certain points in images well after the photo has been taken. If this sounds familiar, it’s because Lytro, a device that Kellex was fascinated with for about 48 hours, does this same effect. Once a picture is taken, you can then go back and re-focus on any point in said image. It’s neat, but when can we expect to see it in our phones? 

Well, if the reports are right, then we are looking at sometime before the end of 2013. Our issue is that since this is Toshiba, we’ll have to hope they make a smartphone with this sensor in place that makes its way to the U.S. that we will actually want to purchase. Fingers crossed.
