The Dragonfly Project

I was searching for something on Google, probably due to reading the JWT thread, and came across the Dragonfly Project, which uses 48 Canon lenses linked together. Does anyone know how/if this project is progressing? Their site doesn't seem to have been updated since 2019. Though I did find a link to a photography site, which says it has (will be?) extended to 168 lenses.

Seems an interesting use of commercially available lenses.

Oh, and it is to have a baby brother, in Australia.

There seem to be publications more recent than 2019 on the "Publications" tab.

No, each element has its own camera, the resolution of the array is the resolution of a single element. The basic advantage seems to be that they can collect exposures for stacking more quickly.
