Pelican Imaging demos 16-lens camera that can build a 3D-printable model of what you record

There is something more, though. Pelican has just announced that by taking a series of pictures or a short video, the camera gathers depth information that allows it to build a 3D model of an object. You can just take a short video and then use the model that has been generated for a realistic 3D print. That is seriously impressive stuff.
When is it coming to real smartphones, you wonder? Pelican Imaging plans on launching it in 2014, but did not shy away from showing its impressive functionality now.

No where in the article mentions Nokia. If anything the phone used in the ad is GS3 !

Nokia is the only company capable to utilize this technology in the rigt way, given their history and experience. Others just follow abd trying to catch up. In camera department, Nokia rules. If you're good at something, show off.

I wonder/hope/think if someday we'll have 41-or-so MP cameras arranged in the 4X4 grid using Pelican's tech, all mounted in an OIS rig, but in a body as slim as a 925? I get shivers of excitement just thinking about it!
