Photo Mode has been an increasingly popular feature we've seen in video games over recent years, and more and more developers including it in their titles, fans are coming up with some creative ways to use the tool. That said, one gamer decided to bring the likes of Marvel's Spider-Man and Kingdom Hearts III's Sora together for one epic selfie.

Smartphones aren't just for selfies anymore. A novel cell phone imaging algorithm can now analyze assays typically evaluated via spectroscopy, a powerful device used in scientific research. Researchers analyzed more than 10,000 images and found that their method consistently outperformed existing algorithms under a wide range of operating field conditions. This technique reduces the need for bulky equipment and increases the precision of quantitative results.
