At Radii, we're curious folk, always finding cool things (sites), taking them apart and watching the gears spin (testing code) and putting them back together again (track changes). Especially in an industry that is continually evolving, we're constantly finding ourselves throttled by the innovations made out there on the web.

The Lytro camera captures all of the light in its field of view which amazingly allows you to change the focus of your photos after the fact. No more blurry auto-focus woes.
