We've seen single-pixel cameras, and now MIT researchers have figured out how to create clear images of dimly-lit objects using single photons -- in 3D, no less. The technique doesn't involve any fancy new hardware, either, as the team worked with a standard photon detector that fired low-intensit...

Taking photos and videos in low-light situations has always involved some kind of tradeoff: you can either crank up the ISO and reduce image quality significantly, use something like Sony's NightShot and add that alien green tint to everything, or trust your image stabilizer to go from wacky-blurry ...
