I love photography and am fascinated by technology. So this story gives me both a wow and a woah.
They’ve developed a new billion pixel camera that can see individual birds from over 3 miles up in the sky. It takes videos the equivalent of 100 Predator drones.
For example, here’s a town in Virginia from 3 miles up:
Then here’s the same town once you zoom in. Oh, and it’s not just photos it takes, it’s a movie of everything happening on the ground, and you can zoom into any spot on the larger photo and see the movie at any period over the past few days.
