Professor David Brady's work in computational imaging attracted the attention of writers at SPIE who focused an article on the work he is doing to build a camera capable of creating the world's first gigapixel images. The machine contains an array of 98 microcameras with microprocessors that can stitch the individual images together. According to the article, "Computational imaging, on the other hand, allows users to refocus a photo, construct a 3D picture, combine wavelengths, or stitch together separate images into one. It can correct for aberrations, generate sharp images without lenses, and use inexpensive instruments to create photos that once would have required expensive equipment, even pushing past the diffraction limit to take pictures with resolutions beyond what a camera is theoretically capable of."
