On the news this morning there was a five minute clip of 3 people in Germany that have had electronic eyes surgically implanted, wired to a small computer chip and the battery pack on a waste belt. The guy on TV this morning had not seen for 15 years, and then he had an apple and a banana placed in front of him, and he identified the banana in seconds. Its like straight out of Babylon 5, its 20 years more development and you have Ge Kars version of the artificial eye ! l cant find a link to this yet if anyone else can it would appreciated if you dropped a link in here to it. Did my new spell check work.

Cool stuff even if in its infancy. Hopefully, they'll improve the light sensor's resolution if and when this thing goes any further.

Wow! That's brilliant!! It's amazing that it's still such a new study, imagine the exponential improvements and possibilities over the course of a few more years! :D

Wow, I remember when such cameras were only 4 pixels, and that was only a few years ago. Crazy fast progression!

Very interesting. Some staggering progress in human prostheses.

Haha, yeah, they could tell if the room was lit or not :p Then they got to 16, and could start deciphering shades of darkness a bit. This new camera is pretty freaking amazing. In 50 years, artificial cameras will quite possibly surpass our natural eyes.

This is pretty awesome, allowing blind people to see again. I guess soon we'll have to get rid of the "like trying to explain color to a blind man" simile... :p
