About this Video
Why can’t you see through frosted glass, when it’s the same material as a window? Why can’t you see through fog, when water is transparent? Because these materials refract light rays and jumble the information that arrives at the human eye, making it impossible to form a clear picture. Guy has come up with a way to unjumble the picture, which may lead to medical and other innovations in the near future.
Guy Satat is a PhD student and research assistant in the Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab. His interests include imaging through scattering, time-resolved imaging, compressive imaging, and medical imaging. He holds a Master’s degree from MIT Media Lab.
