Korean Camera Chip Could Negate Flashes

A new digital camera chip from South Korea's Electronic Technology Institute is 2,000 times more sensitive than current digital camera chips and would allow pictures to be taken in dark settings without a flash. As long as the chip has a source of light that is one lux (one candle) in brightness, it will be able to collect enough information for the picture. This means camera phone users will be able to take shots in places such as bars or theaters with good results. The single carrier modulation photo detector (SMPD) chip was developed using nanotechnology
not really impressed
Here in the States we pay researches six figure salary's a year each, to come up with great technological advancements like xbox360, iphone, viagra etc. and a bunch of Koreans do it for a total of 10.5 million dollars... thats smaller than the Missouri state lottery!! people spend more than that building their houses!!
does anyone else see this coming to pantech? (a Korean company whose known for their innovative awe inspiring phones) i mean their high end ones not the basics here in the states
