Prof. Lee Wing-bun and his research group at the department of industrial and systems Engineering on the Hong Kong Polytechnic college (PolyU) have advanced a device named "Compound eye for high-density three-D imaging." This innovation was stimulated by using the physiological shape of flies' compound eyes. applying extremely-precision rolled plate machining era, this low-fee system realizes higher quality of photographs.
Adopting microlens arrays composed of 12,000 microlens, the generation can acquire realistic 3-D pix of gadgets at both close to and a ways fields and obtain "shoot first, cognizance later" impact. by using processing the captured images, this technology presents a solution for photo distortion caused by situations including inadequate mild and inadequate resolution.
This era may be broadly implemented in imaging programs, together with high precision floor profile, displacement and velocity measurements. In future, such sort of lens can be used for optical cameras for clinical gadgets, Lytro cinema cameras, 3D scanners, as well as the production of three-D photographs and movies and so on. the discovery received a Gold Medal and the Prize of affiliation "Russian residence for international medical and Technological Cooperation" on the forty fourth international Exhibition of inventions of Geneva.
