New bayer filter by Aptina.

New bayer technique by Alptina and it looks quite interesting.

They replaced the green pixels with a clear filter, so those pixels are now sesnative for all light. However there is no green pixel on the sensor anymore, what they do is subtract the information off the blauw and red pixels to get information about the green colour.
Smart and intersting, very curious how it will work out.

Aptina says Clarity+ technology will mean better smartphone cameras: Connect

Seems cool. Too bad Pentax will never, ever use this technology.
Though, this technology might not work well for large sensors? Well who knows.

Interesting insight. Crystal ball, Tarot cards, or tea leaves?

Interesting, but I don't see any advantage in side-by-side sample they posted. The Clarity+ image looks like the Bayer image with some rather severe noise reduction applied, and detail suffers for it. The fine lines in the model car's tire and exhaust pipes are hardly visible anymore.

Well... there were some rumours that Pentax might chose Aptina for their next sensor, so who knows?

I suggest you look more carefully, the noise added some appreant details but if you trully compare one detail with eachother there is little between them
