Facebook has designed a human like eyeball with a body and head to detect the similar functionalities of human eye

Facebook is not just a social networking platform now. Meta management is spreading its wings into other parts of the technology world as well.

Facebook has been working in robotics for the past year and it is not the first time Facebook is adding human characteristics into robots. In November 2020, Facebook announced that they are going to start a partnership with Carnegie Mellon University to create touchable sensing and lightweight skin that could imbue robots with a sense of touch.

Recently, Facebook issued a patent of a mechanical eyeball just like a human eye from the USPTO.

Is it an eye without a head? The Facebook patent of "mechanical eye" comes with an “Animatronic head." Recently, USPTO released Facebook's patent image, showing their “mechanical eyeball” with an animatronic head.

The animatronic head will be a head similar looking to the human body. It will mimic the same functions like chewing and opening etc. The mechanical eye ball will be placed on top of it while a body surface made from skin like material will be presented on the bottom

The design of the mechanical eye very much resembles the human eye design. Similar to the human eye these are two rational exits too with the center point. The mechanical eyeball design is much more sophisticated. There are parts indicated to mimic the sclera, retina, and cornea of a human eye as well as the pupil and iris.

In a given detail about mechanical eye the company said. It is not just a metal ball moving on an axis. This artificial eye will work in some amazing way. It will work with high performing and realistic precisions with the animatronics device tracking the human eye movement. It will detect focus and how much time a human eye can stay on an image. It will also help Facebook to determine the liking of their user along with the digital advertising. Additionally, it will help to build in Facebook AR and VR applications as well. All in all, this product definitely happens to be Facebook’s initial steps into its Metaverse universe, and if all goes well all its related future endeavors are hopeful to be successful too.
