If you're one of the many people who've pretty much stopped carrying their cameras around because you've always got your cameraphone with you, only to get bummed out when you try to take a photo in the dark, Australian technology company CAP-XX is working on a solution for you.

Renowned for their work with supercapacitors, their BriteFlash power architecture is both slimmer than what's currently in cameraphones and far more powerful—tests done with a popular cameraphone (probably the Nokia 6680) had the CAP-XX-modified phone delivering 15 watts of flashpower over 160 milliseconds to the unmodified phone's lone watt over the same time. They've got sample photos on their site as well as diagrams explaining how it works for those of you who are curious and scientifically-inclined.
