Catch flies and put it under a microscope. The structure of fly eyes inspired scientists to develop a motion detection’s video camera, a target detector system for military equipment, and radar.
Because, the eyes of a fly known to clearly see the movement of objects that are in the vicinity. This can be done because these insects can bring together a picture of an object to get different lighting levels. Conventional cameras generally only rely on one level lighting.
For example, look at the movement of a person in the grove of trees. By focusing the view around the movement, the fly eye can see the movement of the object as a whole.
A microscope is a mechanical instrument that magnifies the image of small objects.
equipment consisting of a lens system that focuses an image on a photosensitive mosaic that is scanned by an electron beam
(Radio Detecting and Ranging) Radar is a system for locating objects by bouncing radio waves off of them.
a surrounding or nearby region
