University of Toronto researchers hone in on 3D camera technology

The New York Times reports on a new 3D camera technology that's come from researchers at the University of Toronto, in conjunction with colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University. Cameras that sense depth have been on the market for years - take Microsoft's Kinect camera, for instance - but they don't work in bright light. Now, the researchers have devised a new generation of depth-sensing cameras that use only the light they need to calculate distances, by illuminating their target with laser light. As a result, they can accurately map the contours of an object they're looking at, be it something as simple as a ball or - or as detailed as a human face.
