Artificial eye mimics retina’s natural curve

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The human eye is a sophisticated instrument: images enter through a curved lens at the front of the sphere and pass through its gooey, vitreous liquid before reaching the light-sensitive retina—which relays the signal to the optic nerve that carries the picture to the brain. Engineers have attempted to replicate this structure for about a decade.

Now a new artificial eye successfully mimics the natural instrument’s spherical shape. Researchers hope this achievement could lead to sharper robotic vision and prosthetic devices. A paper on the development was published on Wednesday in Nature.
