    That was my first reaction too, but then I realised that so-called
    standard photography changes all the time. After all, photography
    means drawing-with-light and this will be yet another way of doing it.
    We will have to wait and see.

    Interesting, one of the guys who developed this mentions that it is being adapted for long wave IR, allowing cheap and simple lensless heat cameras. Would it be possible to extend this design in both directions on the spectrum? Microwave "photography" could be pretty interesting with every cellphoneand cell tower acting as a source of illumination. Or perhaps real 'x-ray specs' provided enough ambient x-rays in the room.

    "ambient" x-rays?
