The inventor of an Academy

The inventor of an Academy Award-winning camera lens design has been determined to have deceived the patent investigators who awarded him his patent back in 1994. Seems the demonstration video he showed them used an entirely different set of lenses than the ones he "invented". The lenses supposedly allow near and far objects to stay in focus at the same time, but a judge has ruled the design "defies the laws of physics". Despite this, several high-profile cinematographers testified at the trial that the lenses do what they are claimed to do. [LA Times -- login with 'amysrobot' and 'password']
