This 50GP camera will put an end to the megapixel war

Scientists at Duke University spent $25 million to develop the Aware-2 - a 50 gigapixel camera that consists of 100 microcameras, each with a 14MP sensor :

"The new camera collects more than 30 times as much picture data as today's best consumer digital devices. While existing cameras can take photographs that have pixel counts in the tens of millions, the Duke device produces a still or video image with a billion pixels—five times as much detail as can be seen by a person with 20/20 vision."

Watch this video for more details and samples taken with the camera:
