Particularly computational optics could also be interesting for
reducing the cost of camera hardware. Why have fancy lens and
zoom systems if you can just reconstruct the image from wherever
the photons happen to hit your sensor ?

(Disclaimer: that's at least how I imagine it as a layman. Maybe
there are theoretical or technological limits beyond just
processing capability that make this infeasible.)
