On Lytro's Design

Rethinking camera design with the Lytro's long tube shape.
Interesting article from Fast Company about how lens and internals of the new Lytro camera required them to rethink camera design completely, going for a long tube instead of the rectangular shape that has defined camera design for the last forty years. Reminds me of a quote from Luigi Colani who designed the Canon T90 (which went on to define camera design) on a new project of his: "I am working with the German Zeiss company on the camera of tomorrow. It will only be a lens with a grip on it—that’s all. Not a stupid box like we have today."
