We're just as baffled by the technology behind the Lytro Camera ($399) as we imagine our ancestors were the first time they had their photographs taken with one of those under-the-blanket-blinding-flash-monstrosities. The mysterious voodoo of the Lytro lets you perform all kinds of magic on your photos. Did you take a photo head on? Perspective Shift allows you to see it from a different angle. Did you snap a blurry action shot? No worries, the camera captures the entire light field, so you can refocus your photo after you've taken it. Pair that with the Lytro phone app (which syncs with your Wi-Fi-enabled camera to directly upload photos to social media) and you've got an amazingly modern camera that takes the perfect shot every time.
