What was that camera called ?

Around 10 years ago (as I remember) there was a revolutionary camera briefly on sale. It didn't focus in the conventional sense but sort of collected image data which one could download and, with the associated software, focus, i.e. one could move the focal plane back and forth and export photos from the selected focal plane. I hope someone can understand what I'm trying to describe. I'm not sure of the correct optical terminology. From the description it seemed to me to be the perfect camera but it was only briefly on sale and our local camera store said at the time that there had been no demand for it "...because no-one understood what it did".

Can anyone here remember what it was called and why it disappeared ?
