1000000000000 frame-per-second camera

Ramesh Raskar‘s team at MIT Media Lab have built a camera capable of capturing light trajectories at a trillion frames per second. Which is relatively fast. Jared Newman at Time’s Techland points out that if it were slowed to a more conventional frame rate of around 30 fps, you would need an entire lifetime to watch just a tenth of a second of this footage.
