Researchers have developed nanosized sensors made of light-detecting perovskite arranged over a curved aluminum oxide membrane as part of a robotic eyeball that mimics the function of the human eye, according to findings published in Nature. "In the future, we can use this for better vision prostheses and humanoid robotics," says Zhiyong Fan, a study author.
