Xiaomi developed its own pixel grid arrangement that allows light to pass through the gap area of sub-pixels. At the same time, each single pixel has a complete RGB subpixel layout with no sacrifice in pixel density. All of that means that the display pixel density above the camera is the same as elsewhere on the screen, showing the “same brightness, color gamut and color accuracy.” Xiaomi also optimized the camera algorithm, claiming it performs the same as conventional front cameras.

By itself, the study revealed what was possible with the material. You could turn the friction (and thus the fluid state) “on and off like a switch” just by varying the pressure. However, Swansea University also suggested this could have a significant impact on engineering going forward.

After leaving Google in March, Marc Levoy, the imaging expert who helped create some of the Pixel lineup’s most important computational photography features, has landed at Adobe. In an email, the Photoshop-maker said Levoy will “spearhead company-wide technology initiatives focused on computational photography and emerging products, centered on the concept of a universal camera app.” Precisely what that universal camera app will entail Adobe hasn’t said yet.
