Lytro-Will this be the Revolution of Camera?

Lytro, as I read it from newspaper today, named after the company name-it will bring revolution to the camera business today.


Lytro, Inc. is a light field camera startup company founded in 2006 by Ren Ng, a light-field photography researcher at Stanford University. Lytro's products are targeted to consumer use, while the first company to enter the market of plenoptic cameras, German company Raytrix, has targeted its products to industrial and scientific applications of light-field photography.
Lytro produces its own cameras rather than licensing its technology with an established manufacturer. In 2011, Lytro demonstrated capability to produce a camera that allows users to change the focus of a picture after the picture is taken. According to TechCrunch, plenoptic cameras such as Lytro's are "a new type of camera that dramatically changes photography for the first time since the 1800s."
The company's first camera went on sale October 19, 2011 in 8 GB (US$399) and 16 GB ($499) versions, and shipped in February 2012.

Capture everything - instantly.
Capture living pictures with the press of a single button. By instantly capturing complete light field data, the Lytro camera gives you capabilities you've never had in a regular camera.

Focus after the fact.
Since you'll capture the color, intensity, and direction of all the light, you can experience the first major light field capability - focusing after the fact. Focus and re-focus, anywhere in the picture. You can refocus your pictures at anytime.

And focusing after the fact, means no auto-focus motor. No auto-focus motor means no shutter delay. So, capture the moment you meant to capture not the one a shutter-delayed camera captured for you. 
  Make it magic.
Lytro lets you take pictures like never before. Unlike a conventional camera that captures a single plane of light, the Lytro camera captures the entire light field, which is all the light traveling in every direction in every point in space.
