Tiny camera in Illinois offers bug's eye view

URBANA, Ill. (AP) — A tiny new camera developed at an Illinois university is giving researchers a bug's eye view.

The camera created by a research team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is about the size of a penny and mimics insects' bulging eyes. It features 180 micro-lenses, giving it a panoramic field of view and the ability to focus simultaneously on objects at different depths.
