The World Through My Eyes

How would images look if we captured them on a camera that was based on the Human Eye? Taking into consideration our field of vision, optical sensory and the brain’s perception of images, George Milde has developed the Human Eye Camera. This device combines modern technology with digital postproduction. When the light hits the “eye” of the camera, it is spread via a prism onto three arrange-able sensors. And like the digitalized version, this one too offers the RAW format, which is variable in focus and focal length. The outcome of images is like a stitching or overlay of pictures. Like a panorama picture that’s been curved and distorted coz the brain did not flatten the peripheral view.

    sorry but i just don’t get it…
    what‘s the difference to a fish-eye equipped slr?
    what‘s the benefit?
    splitting the optical image with a prism is done in high end camcorder but why not just use a foveon chip with 3 layers?

    aside from looking creepy,
    can anyone just point out where the need is?

    I could see using it to capture two individual images, and showing one to one eye and one to the other so it would be sort of like a 3D kind of thing, but Just combining them into one image kind of eliminates the whole reason why I would do this sort of thing…

    Could have used this in the movie EAGLE EYE.
    Radical idea, how about the end product- photo print (better or same).
    Justify why camera is better

    Those pictures look a little too warped to me. This design needs a bit of work.

    new type of film making will emerge…watching the story evolve through actors eyes…very close and personal
