Bionic Eye

Thought Provoking

Wow, just saw this story in the Guardian about the development of a bionic eye.

Six blind patients have had their sight partially restored by a “bionic eye” surgically implanted onto their retina. Although it restores only very rudimentary vision, the device has proved so successful that its developers are about to begin a study of a more sophisticated version on between 50 and 75 patients.
