Your eyes work at 100Mbps

July 27, 2006 at 8:42 pm (Science)

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine estimate that the human retina can transmit visual input at about the same rate as an Ethernet connection, one of the most common local area network systems used today. They present their findings in the July issue of Current Biology. This line of scientific questioning points to ways in which neural systems compare to artificial ones, and can ultimately inform the design of artificial visual systems.

Well unfortunately, human visual ethernet doesn’t come equipped with a firewall for “adult content” filter. Now how cool (and frustrating) would that had been!
