Insects see the world very differently than we do, but researchers from Newcastle University in the UK now say that the praying mantis possesses one important element of human vision: It can see in 3D despite having a comparatively tiny brain.

(NIH/National Human Genome Research Institute) The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) today launched a new round of strategic planning that will establish a 2020 vision for genomics research aimed at accelerating scien...
Newcastle University researchers outfitted praying mantises with tiny 3D glasses to better understand the evolution of vision, and potentially improve computer image processing.
The new research could help robots interpret the world around them.
One approach to try “to understand 3D vision in the praying mantis, the only invertebrate known to have this ability, and compare it with vision in humans” is to equip a mantis with specially-built tiny 3-D glasses, suspend the spec...
