Next-Gen HDR Photography: Down to the Pixel

I've been mucking with high-dynamic range photography for a year or so, and ever since I was introduced to the technology, it seemed clear to me that it was only a matter of time before the ability to adjust for differing light intensities moved from the entire sensor (the current HDR process) to individual sensor pixels. Canon has recently submitted a patent application for just such an approach... while we're still years away from such a device, it's interesting to see movement in that direction.
