This High-Speed Tracking Camera Could Snap The Flash's Family Portrait

Convincing kids to sit still long enough for a photo takes a small army of distracting stuffed animals. That or the University of Tokyo's new high-speed camera tracking system, which guarantees your subject is always in frame.

Instead of moving the glass elements in a lens, or the camera's sensor which can only compensate for subtle movements, the Ishikawa Oku Lab's system uses a pair of independent high-speed mirrors that bounce the subject into the camera's lens, while at all times compensating for extreme movements in pan and tilt. Seeing it action is utterly amazing, and there's no doubt this technology could revolutionise baby photography as we know it.
