you should read about PFCAs, they're fucking fascinating. flat camera with no lens that can be fabbed with the same technology we use to make CPUs https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planar_Fourier_capture_array
"angle sensitive pixel" is what each micro-pixel that I spoke about is. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angle-sensitive_pixel
the article only speaks about it in terms of receiving light, not emitting light. I'm not a physicist but I feel like, maybe it should work both ways?
@SuricrasiaOnline you basically cant do LEDs on silicon (not visible ones anyways) so you're probably limited to µLEDs which seem to be around 5µm with current tech
@cinebox that might be small enough.. the graph here is the same order of magnitude https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:EM_Simulation_of_Light_Interacting_with_an_ASP.gif
@SuricrasiaOnline https://spectrum.ieee.org/nanoclast/semiconductors/devices/bright-silicon-led-brings-light-and-chips-closer This article explains why you can do visible photodiodes on silicon but not LEDs. Its a weird quirk of how silicon's crystal structure works that I still don't fully understand
@SuricrasiaOnline how can it be a massive problem if you're trying to make it smaller? checkmate liberals
@SuricrasiaOnline probably "when optoelectronics saves moore's law", if that ever happens, doing this kinda thing will get a lot easier and the whole thing will be implemented using lasers or something
