New Lytro Platform Provides Lytro Development Kit for Companies to Explore Developing Custom Light Field Cameras & Applications

Lytro sells light field cameras that can capture all of the light rays in a scene to offer photographic capabilities never before possible, such as

  • focusing a picture after it’s taken, and
  • creating interactive, living pictures that can be endlessly focused and refocused by both the photographer and the viewer, bringing new creative possibilities to photography.

In April 2014, Lytro launched the consumer Lytro Illum: A new camera that lets you capture and harness the power of light field, allowing you to create living pictures.
