I know... when i first read the title I was very intrigued to say the least. After reading I thought I definitively needed to share it with the group. folks at MIT figured out that It has to do with the way photons travel and how they interact with the electron of an object... It will bounce back to it's origin, allowing the source to calculate the distance and "paint" a picture of what the object looks like. It obviously need an extremely accurate and very fast processor since these photons travel at roughly 186,000 miles/sec.. The articles explains that in further detail.. Enjoy it:

I can see having a camera like this for military and law enforcement applications. Cool idea. I wonder what else you could use a camera like this for?
Sounds interesting...Go on.
