One of the animal kingdom’s most complex eyes is really quite simple. 
Multiband Polarization Imaging
This paper presents the concept and recent advances of multiband polarized imaging techniques, in particular, a bioinspired multiband polarization vision system that demonstrates a potential in the recognition of targets in challenging operating environments such as low-contrast and hazy conditions.


A Different Form of Color Vision in Mantis Shrimp
Stomatopods appear to use a color identification approach that results from a temporal scan of an object across the 12 photoreceptor sensitivities, allowing for extremely rapid color recognition without the need to discriminate between wavelengths within a spectrum.
