More than 50 years ago, Russell Kirsch clunked out the first digital photograph – his infant son’s face in grainy 176X176 pixels of monochrome. Now 81, Kirsch is tinkering with a computer program to fix and smooth out the square-bit chunks by transforming them into variably shaped pixels. This should make the leering baby mug less creepy. The program can also have multiple real world applications, not limited to fixing paparazzi’s distant shots of pixely nipple-slips. Ka-ching!
