lytro illum

The first high-end camera to capture the entire light field is on sale for $699.99 (46% off with free shipping) in our Nerd Approved Deals Store!

The Lytro Illum dares to be different, boasting even more robust features than its 1st Gen predecessor and a sleek design reminiscent of professional DSLRs. How? Most cameras capture the position of light rays, producing your average static 2D image. But the Illum’s cutting-edge technology records the direction of these rays, generating images you can later refocus, change perspective within, or view in 3D. You can essentially revisit the scene of the photo—meaning you’ll never miss snapping the perfect shot again.

-Take “living pictures” you can adjust afterwards
-Refocus your shots, change their perspective & view them in 3D, even in post-production
-Use familiar digital camera features: auto focus, exposure mode, etc.
-Capture the angle of every light ray in a scene
-Easily carry it anywhere: design is compact, durable & lightweight
-Shoot photos at an optimal resolution for sharing online
-Access an array of tools including photo filters & uploading software

Lytro Illum Camera ($1300 $699.99)

edward snowdenhands

Yesterday, HLN invited Jon Hendren to discuss the sudden appearance of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden on Twitter. Amazingly, they ignored a few obvious signs about what was to come:

1. Jon Hendren is a comedian
2. His Twitter handle is @fart
3. Seriously @fart

Hendren played it straight at first, but it becomes increasingly clear that he’s defending Edward Scissorhands, not Edward Snowden. The only person who seemed to be unaware of this is anchor Yasmin Vossoughian.
