Hi guys! I have heard that Federal Communications Commission got the Lytro camera in their hands and made a teardown of it. Does they prohibited to use it after that?

The famous Lytro camera... It made really great impression on all of us, don't you think? And now Federal Communications Commission got it and made a teardown you are talking about. It is absolutely clear for me why you are worried about it. Our team was worried about it as much as you do now. But you can stop worrying because it is not in danger anymore.
The Federal Communications Commission has only disassembled Lytro camera to make sure that it not uses any illegal technologies to create such impressive effects and pictures. And it does not! Thus you can be as happy as we are now and join our happiness because the Lytro camera works just fine and it is allowed to be used by common people. Yet there is one thing worth to be mentioned here.
The thing I am talking about is the WiFi and Bluetooth capabilities of the Lytro camera. At first look they might be very useful to the camera owners because they will allow them to share pictures made by the camera or even remotely control it. But if you read about the WiFi network vulnerabilities you might be worried about somebody hacking into your Lytro camera and stealing your personal photos, thus preventing anyone stealing photos from Lytro camera using WiFi connection is the effective way to get a better sleep every night.
