Chinese company called Jingkun Technology or Big Pixel Studio has taken a new 195 gigapixel photo that when zooming, it is impossible to see people’s faces from miles away. A high-resolution image is from the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. The company claims that the image is 2,000 times more precise than images taken with an ordinary camera.View More Chinese Company Took 195 Gigapixel Photo of Shanghai

The engineers created the wide-angle digital camera with a super wide point of view, having copied structure of eyes of insects, having relieved pictures of distortions at the edges of the image. According to the scientists the most important and revolutionary part of this camera is bent electronics on a convex surface. Practically all electronic devices are made of silicon, and silicon is very fragile, that doesn’t allow to bend it as we want. Thanks to special “stretching” conductors, the scientists could bend system and place it on a convex surface.
Creating the wide-angle digital camera the scientists were guided by the device of eyes of insects. So, visual bodies of insects consist of a set of the elements, which number can reach up to 20 thousand. Each such facet represents a separate organ of vision with own lens and photoreceptors. The similar device of eyes gives to arthropods improbably big point of view, ultrahigh sensitivity to movement and the infinite depth of sight.
For a long time the scientists try to create analog of a facet eye, however its “copying” always faces a problem of fragility of its components. Scientists from university of the State of Colorado in Bouldera bypassed this obstacle, having pasted lenses on stretching plastic and having connected photosensitive matrixes with help of the conductors braided in a snake.View More Eyes of insects helped scientists to create the ideal wide-angle digital camera
