They tell you about the cool stuff, but not about the bad. Yes, it seems like a nano-fresnel lens good for one frequency.

Their talk about fish-eye effect is pure nonsense. The fish comes from projected a wide image plane onto a flat rectangular area. It's a map making problem, not something physics can overcome.

In 1976 they had flat holographic lenses. Have you seen one in your camera recently?
