Abstract

The eye’s acuity varies across its field of view (FOV), decreasing to 10% of its axial value at only 20°. We describe an optical system that radially remaps the pixels of a miniature display or sensor to match the varying acuity of the eye across its FOV. The variable-acuity technique increases the FOV of an electronic binocular system without any apparent loss in image quality. The result is a better, more efficient human–machine interface.
