Hack-A-Day readers apparently know their biophysics well: Before commenting that humans CAN see polarized light please note that I mention in the paper that “Humans have very marginal sensitivity to polarized light as discovered by Haidinger in 1846, but changes in polarization can only be perceived under very specific conditions.” This incidental sensitivity does not give us an advantage over normal vision in any practical target detection task.
