Project homepage: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/labs/imager/tr/2013/SimpleLensImaging/ Modern imaging optics are highly complex systems consisting of up to two dozen individual optical elements. This complexity is required in order to compensate for the geometric and chromatic aberrations of a single lens, including geometric distortion, field curvature, wavelength-dependent blur, and color fringing. In this paper, we propose a set of computational photography techniques that remove these artifacts, and thus allow for post-capture correction of images captured through uncompensated, simple optics which are lighter and significantly less expensive. Specifically, we estimate per-channel, spatially-varying point spread functions, and perform non-blind deconvolution with a novel cross-channel term that is designed to specifically eliminate color fringing.+ More details
Installation by Harald Haraldsson and Super Nature Design Produced by Wonwei and Super Nature Design More info at http://haraldharaldsson.com -- In 1666, Sir Isaac Newton conducted a famous experiment that has been widely considered as a landmark discovery in the study of optics and color theory. Inspired by this discovery, PRISMA 1666 is an interactive light installation consisting of 15 triangular crystal blocks distributed randomly on a clean white surface. The projection of colorful graphics is refracted and dispersed by these crystal blocks, creating a fascinating visual experience and ambiance. The installation enables interaction with the projected colors, angles, and shapes through a touch interface, creating an opportunity to experiment with these elements like Isaac Newton did so many years before us. The installation is a collaboration between Harald Haraldsson and Shanghai-based design studio Super Nature Design. It was first exhibited at the 2011 International Science and Art Exhibition in Shanghai where it received the Best Creative Design Award.+ More details

In this lecture, I cover the basics optics concepts you need to know to write a glasses prescription. Starting with lens theory, I describe basic spherical problems (near and far-sightedness), astigmatism, presbyopia and bifocals.

Golan Levin (CMU) and Pablo Garcia (SAIC) have designed the NeoLucida: the first portable camera lucida to be manufactured in nearly a century — and the lowest-cost commercial camera lucida ever designed. We want to make this remarkable device widely available to students, artists, architects, and anyone who loves to draw from life. But to be clear: our NeoLucida is not (just) a product, but a provocation. In manufacturing a camera lucida for the 21st century, our primary aim is to stimulate interest in media archaeology—the tightly interconnected history of visual culture and imaging technologies.+ More details
