Worth a read (somewhat technical), but promising. It's just amazing what they can fabricate on a chip today.

Interestingly, they have added an additional layer of circuitry back-to-back via "bump" bonding. This begins to approach a "3D" structure to the sensor, behind the photo sites (rather than to the side). This will eventually increase the processing power on a pixel-by-pixel basis dramatically.

Currently expensive, but VERY promising, AND it's from 2009!
