Very cool (in spite of the title). They have succeeded finding a way to use video to get octopuses to respond to what they see as if seeing the actual thing using HD. Now Haggs needs to figure out how to get an HD display in situ :sagrin:

This is particularly interesting to me because a liquid crystal TV will look very weird to a ceph's polarization sensitivity.
