We present a biologically motivated approach to fast feature extraction on hexagonal pixel based images using the concept of eye tremor in combination with the use of the spiral architecture and convolution of non-overlapping Laplacian masks. We generate seven feature maps “a-trous” that can be combined into a single complete feature map, and we demonstrate that this approach is significantly faster than the use of conventional spiral convolution or the use of a neighbourhood address look-up table on hexagonal images
