Proposed Fresnel imager

I ran across this article:

http://space.newscientist.com/article/dn13820-telescope-could-focus-light-without-a-mirror-or-lens.html

...which describes a technique for creating a very large high resolution Fresnel telescope.

Anyone aware of this being done in an amature instrument?
