NanoLens: Cameraphone Savior?


When the cameraphone first appeared, there was joy throughout the land. Handset shutterbugs dreamed of taking Ansel Adams-like photos without having to drag cameras to high mountaintops. And then there was a collective sigh of defeat. Because, as we all learned in one instance or another, these cameras don't actually take photos. Instead, they render amateur abstract expressionism. But one company is out to restore our faith by making a lens that will make cameraphone pictures usable in the real world. Johnson Electric is that company. It has introduced the NanoLens, a new motion technology that promises to auto-focus cameras in phones. On display in Hong Kong to manufacturers this month, we hope to see it in products as early as next year. Thank you, Johnson. Thank you.
