I don't have one but I read about it a few months back in either Popular Science or Popular Mechanics.  Looks like an interesting concept.

I read about it in a science column a while back. Certainly seems interesting.

That's pretty cool.  I also remember reading about the tech quite some time ago, neat to see it in the market.

Looks neat.  Wonder how stable it is to take pictures.

Interesting tech but I would suggest looking through some professional reviews prior to shelling out $500.00. While it is possible you would be quite pleased with the purchase it appears to me there are a few issues that the company web site fails to mention such as the 'after the fact focusing' can result in a very low resolution finished photo and issues with the small low resolution viewing screen. Also something was mentioned about proprietary processing requiring upload and storage of photos on the company web site in reviews I read.
