Seeing is believing at a summer exhibition which explores the similarities in how humans and robots view the world.

Science Gallery at Trinity College today opens its 'Seeing: What are you looking at?' exhibition which interactively explores subjects surrounding light and vision.

Other highlights include a life drawing class with three robots all by the name of Paul and a demonstration which lets visitors view the world from the perspective of a computer.

Lynn Scarff, director at the Science Gallery, said the event offers "new opportunities to mess about at the boundaries of disciplines".

The free event is open until September 25.
