B-EYE: The World Through the Eyes of a Honey Bee

One of the great treats awaiting Scouts (or any others who learn to search the Web efficiently) is the large number of high quality science Websites put forth by Australian research institutions. B-EYE is yet another such wonderful site. Dr. Andrew Giger, a neuroscientist studying insect vision at the Centre for Visual Science (CVS) at Australian National University, put together this site so visitors could see the world "through the eyes of a honey bee." Although simplified to grayscale images (bees view colors differently than humans), the visual distortions (from human to bee) are fascinating and highly educational. The well-designed site takes the viewer through the specific elements of each visual distortion, offering descriptions, a gallery of pre-processed images, and several options for viewing. The most sophisticated option allows users to set parameters (distance to pattern, horizontal and vertical position, background intensity, etc.) to view a series of images through a human eye, a simulated projection, and eventually, a bee's eye.
