Lytro and the refocusing camera - Looking back

https://www.dpreview.com/articles/4755156977/lytrocameraannounced

This camera was announced in 2011 and nowadays the refocusing function is available in so many smartphones.  Did they use Lytro’s work to sort of launch it into the hands of billions of smartphone users?

Was it worth the risk, time and effort of Lytro’s creator?  Or did history show it was better for the later adopters?
