Munich Centre for Clinical Neuroscience: Eye-See-Cam gaze-driven camera 2008

Great. In the 1960s the psychologist Alfred Yarbus investigated the way we actually see, proving once and for all that the eye is not a camera, contrary to the popular perceptual model, and that on the contrary, our vision is saccadic – we scan our field of view, with points of interest being examined in an attention-driven pattern, dependent on what task the viewer is performing. This is at last a kind of proof that the Cubists (Picasso, Braque, et al) were right – their paintings actually represent how we see the outside world.
