    10/4= 2,500
    So a total of 10,000 pixels with 2,5k pixels at each of the 4 distances.

    Worse then todays cameras and a long way from our estimated 250,000 pixels eye resolution

    What is needed is to expand the capacity of each lens if its ever going to work, maybe 10 pixels per lens.
