The question is when will we see such technology?

Interesting nonetheless!

“The array of nanoantennas, dubbed a “metasurface,” can be tuned for specific wavelengths of light by simply changing the size, angle, and spacing of the antennas.”

Not sure how to interpret this “specific wavelengths”—if these lenses only work with a narrow band of wavelengths then the technology is very interesting for fiber optics, but less so for photography.

Too much gear, not enough common sense!
Flickr and Zenfolio, too!
