Lytro's "industrial design"
Oct 20, 2011

There's been a lot of back-and-forth about the effectiveness, and the usefulness, of the Lytro plenoptic camera. But one thing that isn't being discussed much is the styling. The Lytro presentation made a big thing about the industrial design of their camera. Square, one button, etc.

It's not new, though: it's a totally familiar shape. I had a flashlight like that over 30 years ago. They're still making flashlights in that form factor.

Which one's the Lytro?

The plenoptic cameras flashlights can be found here, if anyone wants to get their hands on some serious style:
