They were often sensitive to a wider visual spectrum than a typical humanoid eye. Droids could have many photoreceptors on their bodies, sometimes highly specialized.
Design[edit | edit source]
The photoreceptors of droids were often made to resemble the eyes of species with which the droids would interact. The LOM-series protocol droid's photoreceptors were made to look familiar to insectoid species such as the Brizzits, Verpines, Gand, Yam'rii and Xi'Dec, while the CZ-series communications/business droid had optical sensors resembling the eyes of the Stacchati.
