I love this! It is so thrilling when technologies are developed, and minds are pushed to their limits, to gift us with new information, an actual "first-time" photo! Just think...given a little more time, this will be an actual color photograph, and look like more than just some scratchings with a pencil! I can't wait!

Seriously, this is cool. Now we need to keep Big Pharma from owning the genes.
