    The program, entitled “Objektive – Besser als das menschliche Auge?”, showed how the Micro-optics team has used the human eye as a model for a new kind of optical objective. Based on artificial muscles, flexible lenses and fluidic apertures, the Engineered Eyeball represents an entirely different approach for optical imaging.

    The X:enius program, available at www.arte.tv/guide/de/056817-006/x-enius, also visited Leica, the EMBL in Heidelberg as well as two artists in Paris who convert entire rooms into pinhole cameras, a fascinating demonstration of how one can use the simplest of all objectives to generate fascinating images.
