Insect eye-inspired camera captures wide view with no distortion | University of Colorado Boulder


curated by | June 3, 2013

“Imitating the functionality of an insect eye — which is really a collection of many tinier eyes, known as ommatidia — in a camera has been a long sought-after goal for engineers. Now, camera lenses with wide fields of view, such as fisheye lenses, create distortion around the edges of the image. But that could change. In a paper published today [April 29th] in the journal Nature, a team of researchers including a University of Colorado Boulder engineer describes an experimental camera that can take exceptionally wide-angle photos without distorting the image.”
