Random Story Idea

So I've been pondering, on-and-off, doing some more fiction writing - though given the amount of academic writing (and script-writing, for some reason) that I'm doing these days I have no idea when I'm going to have time. Still, I ran across something in my cognition textbook that I'd like to use in a story someday. Evidently we're only able to perceive things when they fall in different places in the retina (usually due to our eye movement). If somehow the object is kept still with regard to the retina, it disappears and cannot be perceived. This sounds to me like a plot point, or maybe a technology base, in some kind of sci-fi story. Of course, I'm going to want to write the one about theotechnology first . . . .
