Will future lenses have built in sensors?

As the cost of electronics continues to drop, one might guess that eventually it will become cheaper to just build a curved sensor into each lens, rather than grind additional lens elements to flatten the projected image.

The lenses could all communicate wirelessly to your phone and and viewfinder glasses.  Instead of mounting a camera to your lens, you might attach some kind of grip with a battery and controls.

In fact, if you don't need to hold it to your eye, it would might make more sense to hold the lens like a gun.  It would be a funny picture to see the future photographer wearing a viewfinder on his head and a holster full of lenses, ready to draw at any moment.

People like to hype mirrorless, but the real future could very well be "cameraless".
