The challenge to creating high-pixel imaging lies in the sophistication of the integrated circuits rather than the optics, and now scientists have overcome this hurdle by developing a supercamera that synchronizes 98 microcameras into a single device with the potential to stitch together images with a resolution of 50 gigapixels. The Duke University camera, called AWARE 2, yields five times better resolution than that of 20/20 human vision over a 120° horizontal field, and it has the potential to capture up to 50 gigapixels, or 50,000 megapixels, of data.
