Paris: Inspired by the I human anatomy, researchers in the United States have created the world's first curved electronic "eye" camera, according to a study released recently.
The size and shape of a human eye, the device weaves a network of silicon detectors into a flexible mesh, and could usher in a new generation of distortion-free digital and video cameras.
Experiments already under way are testing other potential applications, including a thin, pliable monitor to detect electrical signals travelling across the undulating surface of the human brain.
Its breakthrough design also points the way to the development of artificial electronic retinas that could... read more
