Super Vision (video)
February 06, 2001

STN2 producer Joyce Gramza wrote a pair of articles which appear in the March issue of Popular Science Magazine. One reports on the recent advances and discoveries in eye tracking—the study of watching our eyes as they continually dart from one thing to the next in order to learn how we naturally process visual stimuli. The article is posted on the Popular Science site. Meanwhile, you can see several movies which show the new technology at work on STN2’s special video page.

The second article is about so-called "super vision"—that is, vision better than 20/20—which researchers hope people will be able to attain through surgery or contact lenses in the future. While the print article about this National Science Foundation (NSF) funded research appeared in Popular Science magazine, below is STN2’s complementary TV news piece. You need QuickTime (which you can get for free here) to view it.

Video is 2 min 18 sec long and 3.7 MB large. Please be patient while it loads enough to start playing.
Requires the free QuickTime plug-in.

Produced by Joyce Gramza (TV) and Brad Kloza (Web).
