I heard the same podcast.  The camera produces proprietary files  by necessity.  He said that they would have a program to convert them to standard with an interface to "focus".

Interesting.  Price, iso, resolution, frames per second, lens system, weight.  Just a few details....

How do you focus a camera that does not need focusing?  Is that like asking where to clutch?

I assume that hyperfocal theory will have a resurgence.

I would assume at this point that you do not focus the camera.  You simply shoot the scene.  Then later in the process you choose the focus.  You could have multiple focus points from the same view.  I would also assume then that it would allow you to make a GIF or AVI of the images where the focus shifts from the front of the image all the way to the back and you would have a 3D effect possible as well.

It opens many new possibilities...Think Hollywood classic portrait images...combined with Ansel Adams depth of filed all possible with one capture of the frame.

Or maybe, three settings, Macro, portrait, and landscape.  It would be amazing to see the highest tech item look like a simple point and shoot (or green zone for the Canon people).
