What Is the Resolution of the Human Eye?
Your eyes are not nearly as perfect as you think they are; your brain makes up for a lot of their faults. To prove this, popular YouTube user Vsauce made a must-watch video that talks about how our eyes work, and at what resolution he predicts them to operate at.
When you hear the term “resolution”, you think of a number like 1920×1080 pixels or 400×600 pixels. But in order to compare our version of the word “resolution” with how our eyes perceive images is like comparing a flashlight to a lightsaber – completely different things, but both still involving the same fundamental of light. Our eyes are a bit more complex than a simple flat image sensor found in cameras and camcorders.
Videos like this really make you stand back and look at yourself in the mirror. Our brains are incredible. (YouTube)
