Scientists, led by an Indian-origin researcher, have developed a novel flexible sheet camera that can be wrapped around everyday objects to capture images that cannot be taken with conventional cameras.

Researchers designed and fabricated a flexible lens array that adapts its optical properties when the sheet camera is bent.

If such an imaging system could be manufactured cheaply, like a roll of plastic or fabric, it could be wrapped around all kinds of things, from street poles to furniture, cars, and even people's clothing, to capture wide, seamless images with unusual fields of view.

This new technology if cheaply available can have a great impact on the camera revolution carried out now.

This will help capture picture which was not possible to take with a single lens camera available now in the market.
