SIPS Project No. 6

By May 14, 2019Uncategorized

I’ve found out why our eyes see things.

It’s called light. Our pupils control the amount of light entering our retinas which then receive the light bouncing off objects, and THEN messages of what we saw our sent towards the brain by the optical nerve. We also see color because of photoreceptors. Us humans have two kinds: cones and rods. Rods are activated by low light levels and very few photons. We have roughly 100 million rods in our eyes. Rods see everything on a greyscale. Cones are activated by lots of light and are used to see color. We have about 6 million cones.

My final project will be Greyscale illusions plus one extra. I am 40% done.
