“F*** it, we’re doing ALL the lenses”: Light raises $121M from Leica & others

Their ambitious 16-lens L16 camera may have been dubbed “Brilliant… and Braindead,” but Light has won the confidence of some big backers:

Welcome to the era of the software-defined camera.

In this era, pocketable, connected cameras can reconstruct the world in three dimensions and superhuman detail, cars are able to perceive the objects around them without the need for special sensors, and robots are able to thread the elusive needle autonomously.

Light’s highly accurate depth mapping can be used to create rich and complex environments for a wide range of applications including augmented reality.

We shall see what they can see!
