This didn't take long. Lockmart just produced a planar array of microscopic optical elements for imaging purposes:

I think the video does confuse resolution with light bucket. If you want to resolve better images of very distant objects with a telescope you need a bigger light bucket. That means a planar array as large as possible, e.g. kilometer-sized, or 100-km sized, the point being much larger than any other kind of optical telescope, bigger even than Moire.

      My mistake, the video actually does not confuse resolution with light bucket. The individual optical elements are shrinking on the photo-integrated circuit, but the overall size of the circuit... more
