Camera

The ancient Greeks thought our eyes emitted rays, like a laser, which enabled us to see. The first person to realize that light enters the eye, rather than leaving it, was the 10th-century Muslim mathematician, astronomer and physicist Ibn al-Haitham. He invented the first camera , he noticed how the light came through a hole in the shutters. The smaller the hole, the better the image He designed and built the first camera  (from the Arabic word for qamara dark or private room). He is also credited with being the first man to shift physics from a philosophical activity to an experimental.
