Thomas Kachadurian: It strikes me as the future of security cameras. Imagine, once the volume of data can be handled by a computer in a security system, imagine the possibilities that can get details out of anything in the scene to be determined later. I think artistic applications will come later.
It offers the advantage of calculating approximate depth and therefore being able to track a person or a car in 3D. This could of course be done with a stereo camera or combining multiple camera images.
