Lytro activated a SECRET Chip in their camera today
It looks like LYTRO has announced a mobile app and not its not to take light field pictures with your iphone (yet). What they are saying is if you own a lytro there is a chip inside that can now be activated to let you share your images with your IOS device.
This means you can be out and about shooting and have your camera send the images right to your phone for editing, perspective shift and sharing to your social verse.
I may have to try this out and see if it gets me using the lytro more or not.
Here is the quote right from lytros blog.
“Pssst. We’re letting you in on a little secret. That Lytro camera you own has a little wireless chip inside. And, as of today, we are turning it on for the first time to give you a great new capability – wireless uploading and sharing!
Introducing the Lytro Mobile app. If you own an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device, you can now experience and share light field pictures on the go. The app communicates with your Lytro camera, whose wireless capabilities can be activated with a free software update, and lets you preview and upload pictures to Lytro.com using either a cellular or Wi-Fi network.”
You don’t need a lytro to download the APP by the way. The App works almost like an instagram but for living images taken with the Lytro. You can’t follow people just yet but you can follow the stream of images and interact with them.
