In 2011, Avigilon brought us the 29-megapixel camera.
Now, Duke University engineers have built a protoype 50-gigapixel camera, which has a resolution five times better than 20/20 human vision.
The camera works by combining 98 mini cameras in a single device. Each camera captures information and software, developed by researchers at the University of Arizona, stitches all the images together to create a highly detailed image.
The camera measures 2.5 feet square and 20 inches deep.
Details of the new camera were published in the journal Nature.
