The Terminatorís bionic eye becomes reality
The human eye is capable of focusing an image on a curved surface at the back of the eye. Usual cameras were never able to do so because of electronic materials that wouldnít tolerate being curved.
Rogers and his team say they have developed a way to have a flat sensor adhere to a curved shape, similar to the surface of the back of a human eye. Traditional camera makers on the other hand use multiple lens arrangements to avoid distortion.
Scientists explained that this is the first time anyone has built a curved light-sensitive surface for a digital device of this sort and the breakthrough opens up the possibility of attaching similar sensors to parts of the human body.
