• Engineer Develops Eyeball-Like Image Sensor Based on Art of Kirigami

    10 monthes ago - By Peta Pixel

    A mechanical engineer has developed a camera with what is described as a “curvy” and eyeball-like adaptable imaging sensor that is based on the Japanese art of cutting and folding paper that he claims could improve the quality of some types of cameras.
    Modern image sensors use a conventional rigid and flat surface to record light and translate that into images and use glass or plastic elements in lenses of varying sizes to correct for visual aberrations. But University of Houston Professor of Mechanical Engineering Cunjian Yu has developed a sensor that can curve like a human eye and work...
