Have you ever dreamed of having eyes in the back of your head?
Yeah, we haven't either, but FlyVIZ, designed by French engineers, lets you experience a real-time 360 vision of your surroundings. It combines a panoramic image acquisition system (positioned on top of the your head) with a head-mounted display (HMD) and a laptop for transforming the fly-eye images in real time into something humans can see.
"We foresee potential applications in different fields where augmented human capacity (an extended field-of-view) could benefit, such as surveillance, security, or entertainment," say the inventors.
