Praying mantises wearing tiny glasses help researchers discover new type of 3D vision

This praying mantis isn't just wearing minuscule 3D glasses for the cute factor, but to help scientists learn more about 3D vision. A Newcastle University team discovered a novel form of 3D vision, or stereo vision, in the insects - and compared human and insect stereo vision for the very first time. Their findings could have implications for visual processing in robots.[...]
