PolyEyes 2.0 lets you see the world through the eyes of a chameleon

Chameleons are amazing animals that arouse our genuine interest. They hunt with a long sticky tongue, with which they literally "shoot", glue and capture the prey. But perhaps the most surprising thing about chameleons is their unusual eyes that move independently of each other, which provides them with an all-round vision.

The Interactive Architecture Lab's PolyEyes 2.0 device allows us to see the world through the eyes of a chameleon. The wide headset is somewhat reminiscent of the head of a hammerhead shark or a sports car of the late 80s. The device is equipped with two Raspberry Pi cameras hidden under small transparent domes.

Thanks to them, the user can see in a sector of 180 degrees. The picture itself will be displayed on the screen of the Raspberry Pi computer module, where the image in the center will be "broken", similar to how each eye sees separately.

PolyEyes 2.0 is a fragment of a concept costume, which also includes an exoskeleton and limbs. For the Interactive Architecture Lab, its creators say, it is "part of the ongoing process of modernizing the human being."
