A novel minimally invasive micro-endoscopes utilizing disordered light within a standard multimode optical fibre have been introduced recently. The two most important limitations of this exciting technology are (i) the lack of bending flexibility (transformation matrix is only valid as long as the fibre remains stationary) and (ii) high demands on computational power, making the performance of such systems slow. Here we discuss possible routes to address the later one: We introduce a GPU toolbox to make this powerful technique faster and more accessible to bio-medical researchers.
