From ars technica:
With a single lens, [the human eye] achieves a huge effective field of view (around 120 degrees) with a resolution that might make your Nikon SLR turn in its CMOS chip. The reasons for this can be traced back to two simple features: the eye has a curved sensor surface, and it moves continually in tiny, angular steps. Now, researchers have demonstrated the ability to replicate this in an electronic eye that holds the promise of delivering cheap, small, high-resolution cameras.

Where was I when this thing was released? and un-released? and released again? and un-released again? Cheers to the lucky few who had a chance to download Netshare before it got yanked from the App store.
