TheSensory Ecology & Evolution group over at the University of Exeter have put a few games together to explore and help understand the evolution of perception. The games revolve around playing the role of a predator trying to find birds and eggs to eat. You can play the role of different predators as you play a ‘hidden object‘ style of game.
There’s one to find eggs and another to find birds.
They give a really neat perspective on how difficult it is to find camouflaged animals and their eggs in natural surroundings.
Just one warngin, however, they’re a lot harder than they look! I was a terrbile predator and am very glad that I can get what I need to eat at the grocery store.
Give it a try and help some scientists better understand sensory evolution.
