    It probably only starts filling the buffer when it detects at
    least a half-press of the shutter. Otherwise it might need to be
    attached to a Diehard marine battery. :) This type of "pre"
    buffering is also used by some audio recorders.

    If it accepts MMC cards, perhaps only one frame. :) Actually, it
    should be limited by the amount of internal buffer memory. It would
    be kinda neat if the buffer could be expanded by plugging in a
    "computer" memory module, which could increase the buffer size to
    the multi-gigabyte range. Even with that, you'd still want to use
    extremely fast memory cards. I don't think that a camera of this
    type will make it into production any time soon.

    It's designed to use a thiotimoline based lubricant. :)

    It it's ever made available at *any* price it'll also be amazing.
    Many prototypes aren't even intended to become future products. It
    this one sees the light of day as a real product it'll probably be
    no sooner than 2009. It's still a very interesting gadget, or as
    you said, pretty amazing, and it doesn't use a Gatling lens/sensor
    array!

    It uses a thiotimoline activated shutter and so manages to
    take pictures a millisecond *before* you press the shutter
    button.
