In 1878, Scientific American published Muybridge's famous photographic time series of horses in trot and in gallop, providing insights into the biomechanics of animal motion too fast to be resolved by the human eye [1]. A few decades later, Lucien Bull presented even faster image sequences of insect flight [2]. Ever since, fast detection, measurement, and acquisition schemes have been a pillar of research fields ranging from materials science and chemistry to structural biology and medicine. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
