Out of curiosity, does anyone have a link to something that explains exactly how it works? I.E. how the sensor picks up oncoming light from so many directions, and how the headlamps split the beams and move them around?
I've got some info and data on my other PC, will post some links when I get a moment.


EDIT: Just remembered the company name.
