The AWARE series of DARPA multiple cameras show that optics and electronic sampling provide no barrier to camera information capacity. They already have 10 gigapixels and will soon have 50 gigapixels. There is a technical plan to achieve petapixel imaging (a million gigapixels). Capacity is ultimately limited by photon flux and atmospheric turbulence. There is laser beacons that can be used to counter atmospheric turbulence. Communications and processing are the current limiting factors. Cost is rapidly being reduced. This imaging can be combined with Leap Motion sensing to achieve massive super detailed (micron scale) three dimensional motion awareness. The multicameras will be placed into long duration drones.
Many Gods and heroic beings had superhuman vision or were all seeing. Heimdell the god who protected Bifrost the rainbow bridge to Asgard had supersight and was considered all seeing. Odin’s ravens Huginn and Muginn were also considered to be all seeing.
At the Def Con hacker conference Saturday, MIT students David Lawrence and Eric Van Albert plan to release a piece of code that will allow anyone to create a 3D-printable software model of any Schlage Primus key, despite the company’s attempts to prevent the duplication of those carefully-controlled shapes. With just a flatbed scanner and their software tool, they were able to produce precise models that they uploaded to the 3D-printing services Shapeways and i.Materialise, who mailed them working copies of the keys in materials ranging from nylon to titanium. There are 3D printers and laser printers that can be more compact and mobile. Also, the copies can be produced from high resolution photographs and images taken from a great distance with powerful camers. This would enable the capabilities of the Matrix Keymaker.
