I saw this and initially thought that there is no point in me looking at it since it didn’t relate to my camera gear, but then I looked again and realises the enormity of this project.  To have a small computer control a camera gives rise to all kinds of time lapse, exposure, photo sharing etc.  I do imagine a camera with a high quality sensor and lens combination and on the back is a slot for a smart phone to control it. So in affect create apps for camera hardware, given what I can do with an iPhone, right now, that would be pretty amazing and I”m convinced that some camera manufacturers are looking at it.
