Came across this interesting article on BBC online news service. Here is a quote from one of the lead authors,

 "It might seem a bit counter-intuitive to think that more information can be captured from a detector which uses just a single pixel rather than the multi-megapixel detectors found in conventional digital cameras ..."

Here is the link to the article:

I think Canon will charge $8,000 for a 3D camera - even if it only has ONE pixel!

I'm waiting for the 3Dv2...rumor has it that it will be 2 pixels, but at twice the price. ;D
