I had as aesthetic thought for something and I want to know if there would be any actual value to it.

It's an arrangement of 6 cameras, in a circle, on the end of a cylinder, all facing the same direction. There can also be a camera in the center, but this is not necessary.

The cylinder that mounts the cameras can spin, and if need be, the cameras can spin independently.

Each camera operates independently as well, and can be set to different focal lengths or spectrums, and equipped with various data processing software.

The unit with thus input has two of them, side by side for binocular vision.

What are the potential uses of these computerized spinning compound computer eyes?

First of all, you wouldn't need two. You get binocular vision from any two cameras mounted on the same cylinder, with opposing pairs giving the best depth perception.[/quote]

I know we don't need them, but, for this purpose, we got 'em. Be sure to factor that in when figuring out the potential of the double-sextacular setup

Best guess? The spinning would compensate for errors from the different positions of each camera, errors in the lenses, polarization effects, possibly adds a hyper resolution (our own eyes constantly move slightly and our brains correct the image to see sharper detail then if our eyes were static)
