While the industry focus has been to develop lenslet arrays for mounting directly on an image sensor, Pubble Hill is creating low cost light-field lenses to mount within a lens assembly or to mount directly on an image sensor.

What is a light-field lens?
If you don’t know what a light-field lens is, it’s essentially a way to make a standard camera see in true 3D. The end product is an array of tiny lenslets, similar to a butterflys compound eyes. The applications for this technology are endless.
Machine vision: Take a 3D picture and digitally measure everything in the image with great accuracy. Automatically ensure manufactured product meets dimensional and other specifications.
Microscopy: Capturing the light field of an image, gives you a much greater dept of field. No need to scan the z axis any more. These optics allow you to see and accurately measure everything you are looking at with true depth through video or still images.
Augmented reality: Since you can now capture the position of everything in a scene in true 3D with your light-field camera, you can also accurately place CG objects within the scene. Make killer augmented reality applications.
Security: Take real 3D images for facial recognition like never before.
Every camera should be light-field capable.
