    Interesting as a concept. I wonder how long for any kind of practical application?

    What a great name..."achromatic metasurface." Maybe this will lead to a high quality credit card size camera.

    A.K.A., cell phones. :p Seriously, I agree that this could make much better phone cameras and some really thin ILC. Maybe even some combination of the two.

    Hope we see this in applications soon. If it actually produces a good image, which it seems they don't even have a working prototype, then this could be the future for full-frame mirrorless as well. Pancake lenses galore!
