one step closer to camera contact lenses mmm
inb4 weird as fuck looking glasses with this embedded in them actually that's awesome [editline]20th January 2011[/editline] oh wow ninja'd by 15 minutes fml
I want sample pics.
If I lose an eye I want someone to hook one of these up to my eyesocket.
[QUOTE=GunFox;27542541]Comparatively our view is quite narrow. Like most non-insect land-dwelling predators, our eyes are mounted on the front of our heads. Prey animals, such as horses, rabbits, or certain species of bird, have their eyes mounted on the sides of their head. Prey animals have a huge range of vision in order to look in all directions. This does however make them more susceptible to being fooled by camouflage. Predators, like us, have a decent range of vision, but more than anything we are fine tuned to detect movement and recognize patterns. Depending on the layout of the eye and the brain, the pattern recognition can either be useful in defeating camouflage, or a weakness. In general, the human eye is pretty damn good. We don't have laser hawk vision, but by the same token, we aren't damn near blind in the dark like hawks are. Our eye is flexible in order to allow us the ability to hunt and move in virtually any situation. I'm not sure that there is an animal out there that actually has better eyesight in terms of overall performance. They tend to specialize heavily.[/QUOTE] Well ain't that quite the obvious. Along with our own level of smartness, eyesight and the overall practicality of our body, I think it's pretty safe to assume we are more self-aware and shit than any other animal can be when it comes down to that kinda "survival" situations. Can you even imagine how helpless some animals must feel when being captured and eaten alive? So this robotic eye even if installed to a human, it wouldn't make too much of a difference imo
Anything is better than the human eye. It's pretty shite. We have a gigantic blind spot that having two eyes makes up for and can only see colours (not the entire spectrum of waves, like infrared, etc).

GREATEST IDEA EVER...... CONTACT LENSES with zoom capability.bam Im rich
Mechanical optical elements have outclassed organics for a century or more. Call me when they have the sensor to match. (Not on this side of 2020.)

Do we need to see in infrared or ultraviolet? Also, I don't see this gigantic blind spot you're trying to talk about.
The blind spot is, I think, where the optical nerve connects to the eyeball, so no rods or cones can grow in that spot. You don't see it because you're used to it.
To say that the human eyesight is good is stupid statement. Look at the hunters of this world. Eagles can spot tiny animals from miles away. Tigers, cats, dogs etc... can see perfectly at night. Bees see in infrared.

There's absolutely no reason a human being needs to see in infrared, which requires substantially different forms of vision then the standard eyeball we have (ask yourself why there's no species of mammal that can see in infrared.)
[quote] Northwestern University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign [/quote] Illinois represent. [editline]20th January 2011[/editline] Yes, Northwestern is really in Illinois. Chicago specifically.
Short of mutant birds and fucked up sea-slugs we have the best colour sensitivity around.
First thing that came to mind (even though I was a bit disappointed when I read what it looked like): [img]http://gyazo.com/8301aabed8ca52462275dc70fa8c83a0.png[/img] I'm starting to look forward to our future realities.
Is that from Crysis 2 :O
Deus Ex: Human Revolution Good guess, though.
[QUOTE=BmB;27554021]Is that from Crysis 2 :O[/QUOTE] Deus Ex or something
It looks exactly like the Crynet GUI though.
I want one.

Kind of like HD glasses. Grass is greener!

Each animal is good at one thing and bad at other. Humans have the most balanced vision. We have a little bit of everything.
[QUOTE=johan_sm;27559882]This. Each animal is good at one thing and bad at other. Humans have the most balanced vision. We have a little bit of everything.[/QUOTE] Not for long. Augmentations to see in UV and IR should be pretty snazzy. Useless in most aspects but still awesome.

Oh, wait, the planet is fucking bathed in microwaves, radio waves, and infared. I get the feeling that everything would be disgustingly bright, all of the time.

[QUOTE=yawmwen;27536820]Our eyesight is pretty damn good. We aren't really deficient in any sense, we have respectable levels in all senses.[/QUOTE]For most people :smith: I've got about -7 on both lenses, plus the nystagmus.
