News release- God was right after all!
warren@fourward.com   9/5/2012 6:55:31 PM
No matter which animal or human example you use, the Creator got it right the first time.  It is a wise choice to not try and reinvent the wheel.  It has already been invented!  So, copy nature build a better mouse trap.  The trick is to understand how He did it.  That isn't so easy.  There are reasons for everything nature does.  Engineers need to take time and look around.  It is amazing what the world has to teach us!

I'm with you Naperlou. I would think there may be better vision models in nature than the human eye movement. The insect or bird worlds probably have superior versions of eye movement than human eye movement.

Is human motion the best motion

While this is very interesting, one thing that the researchers did not address is a comparison of human motion and more traditional machine motion.  While humans are very flexible, they are often not very precise.  A more interesting question is what is the optimal type of motion.
