Plenoptic Function Sensing Hacks

After seeing what's in the animal world (Thanks Lauren and Arthropoda) or potentially humans

and reading Compressive Sensing of  High-Dimensional Visual Signals  by Aswin Sankaranarayanan, I could not stop thinking that there are several ways to sample the plenotpic function and that in some way, they are all ... hacks.
It's been a while since I have done this but let me list some other potential hacks.sensing mechanisms that cross my radar screen recently. Let us note that today's entry mixes hacks sensors and multiplexers at different levels of  Technology Readiness Levels.scale.

  • Flat Lenses that are nanodesigned. see [1]. some simple explanations are given here.
