I'm new here, I thought my new project, which involves designing new kind of lenses able to achieve interesting effects, might grab your interest.
Here is a link that explain briefly what it could do, and how it can be done.
And here are some examples :
(there is no post-processing apart from white balance and curves)
If you are interested in getting such a lense, please contact me : burmese.z [a] gmail [dot] com
If you know someone who might be interested, give them the .pdf and my email please
If you want that kind of effects to be widely used in the near future, help me and spread the .pdf :-)

Thank you very much, I see I'm not the only one thinking of that :-)
The static thing as in the first two examples in your link are known since, the beginning of 20th century. As I said in the PDF, medium format lenses using this could be found litterally 50 years ago. And the effect is a lot better than on the first video, where the customised diaphragm is misplaced in front of the lens, creates loads of flare, etc.
I started to think of that kind of things with a LCD screen few years ago (a little while before Sony Xperia Pureness first apparition on the web, ~2008 I think), I spent the whole time with this thought in mind.
And I think it is now mature enough, I've thought of basically everything, and I only need some fundings to be able to build a great quality prototype in no time. I've thought of a lot of various effects achievable with a dynamic aperture, too, and here is the real innovative thing.
Edit : Sadly I can't edit my initial message, but as you saw, the examples I show there are not innovative themselves, the innovative thing is the ability to dynamically change the aperture, and that's explained in the .pdf.
