Well, just make your sensor on a matching sphere, (sure, what could possibly be the problem).

Bill :pardon:

Canon 7d, Nauticam, Lots of glass, Olympus OMD-EM5, Nauticam, 60 macro, 45 macro, 8 mm fisheye, Inon, S&S, Athena Strobes plus lots of fiddly bits.

Yes, that would be an almost perfect replication of the human eye: a wide-angle lens on the front and a hemisphere-shaped sensor (the retina) on the back sending picture data to the brain. No shutter required; focusing mechanism and iris still lacking. Let the processor do all data-processing to get a straight picture out of it.
