Chameleon eyes?

How does this lizard's small brain comprehend two different visual fields? Our eyes focus at one focal point, but their eyes are everywhere! How do they process such information?

    A chameleon can aim its two eyes independently, so that one eye looks ahead while the other looks back, or one looks up while the other looks down. The chameleon can do this because its eyes are on slightly raised turrets on either side of its head, instead of being sunken into protective sockets, as ours are. In certain other respects a chameleon’s eyes resemble ours. Since chameleons are active during the daytime, their retinas include cone cells. Different types of cone cell respond differently to light of different colors, so an animal with cone cells in its retina can see colors. (Many types of animals that are active only at night lack cone cells in their retinas, and cannot distinguish colors.)

    Their Brains are wired and programmed differently than ours.

    Could your home computer run your car if you plugged into your car?

    Nope.

    But a computer that is less powerful can, cause it is programmed and wired to do so ;-)
