That is so cool. Immagine if instead of a regular camera they hooked up an infra-red camera, a patient could see in the dark. Or if they hooked up the electrodes directly to a cable line or a computers video card. You would be able to “see” without a screen. :eek:
Women are no longer slaves to pregnancy and the human race is capable of fully controlling family planning. Ok, so it’s not really all that new but I still consider it cool science stuff.
(sorry, couldn’t help myself )
It is cool though, this bionic eye. I’m a bit of a tech-geek sometimes, and I admire these things. But where will it end? Will a day come when overpopulation is the only reason we have to end a life, because we’ll be able to sustain human individuals infinitely otherwise? It’s not that far off, you know. Will the day come that we decide that everyone has the right to 100 years max, and then will be terminated? Will we like China impose a 1 child limit? Surely we’ll need to find some other inhabitable planets if we don’t.
