Human eye is one of the best creations and it’s one of the best part of our body. The best part varies from person to person. The news is about an eye shaped camera which resembles human eye. It was successfully designed by the US scientists using standard sensor materials. Looking at the picture it looks to be an ideal solution for bionic eye.
This is a great boon to those who are blind. This breakthrough should help them to see this beautiful world again. The scientists have said that this could be well used for an artificial retina. I don’t have to tell you how important is this retina for our eyes. It is first time that the camera is demonstrated on curved surface to make it look like human eye. Picture tells us how successful the attempt is.
The surface may well look curved but is made up of very small squares. These tiny squares hold the photo detectors and electronic components. The squares are connected to each other with tiny wires which help the squares to mould into curve surface. It is difficult task to mount the circuit boards on curved surface as they come only in flat shape. The above solution helped to mount the components without breaking them.
Another good use of it may be in the robots. Current generation robots could be improved to a great extent with the use of this eye shaped camera. They will also resemble human beings more precisely. Only time will tell us where this ground breaking invention will lead us. Till that time comes you can keep reading my blog and..
