Cambits is a futuristic and innovative modular imaging system, developed by a team of innovators led by Shree Nayar of Columbia University and Makoto Odamaki of the Ricoh Corporation, that is designed to make it easier than ever to conduct imaging for scientific purposes.

Scientific research often requires different kinds of imaging, and the Cambits system makes it possible to devise systems out of convenient electronic building blocks rather than having to buy several cameras. The Cambits modular imaging system comprises five kinds of colorful 3D-printed plastic blocks that can be stuck to each other magnetically and be electronically linked.

Ultimately, this modular imaging system is helping to redefine the camera by coming with a modular and customizable system that can be used to capture different kinds of images.
