Wisconsin scientists build fastest digital camera

Admittedly, you're not going to be seeing this thing in use for the next SuperBowl, but the University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers are hoping that it will enable them to get pictures of the Higgs Boson particle (a key element in the Standard Model of particle physics). According to an article from the University, the "camera" (really more of a digital sensor) is capable of imaging once every 25 nanoseconds and is built as a set of 300 parallel- processing boards stacked into a series of computer racks. It's headed off to Geneva in June to be installed at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
