Hexagonal Image Generation by Virtual Multi-grid-Camera
The process of capturing of an image is realized by a two-dimensional plane composed of photosensitive elements of almost entirely rectangle shape in technical solutions. However, biological visual systems use almost entirely hexagonal shapes and theoretical research shows the advantages of them but also the lack of usable capturing devices. We address this problem and create a virtual multi-grid-camera to overcome the problem and make further research possible. We create some scenes with common known content to demonstrate the use and show some effects being the result of the different shapes.
