Bee Brains Paving the Way for Better Cameras

Posted on: Thu 6 Jul 2017

Casey Harrigan, producer from the Royal Institution of Australia, joined Jennie Lenman to discuss the latest in science, including personalised vaccines for skin cancer, a recently discovered microorganism living on our skin and how a bees eye-sight can change the way we portray colour in technology.

Casey says, “these researchers from RMIT basically did the maths and they figured out how the honey bees can take the ambient light and take the way the light changes and apply it to those colours [that are distorted by light] and are hoping that now they can implement that into cameras and vision sensing systems.”
