Oh, my boss would love this. A borg army to cut code 24/7. Ironic, as I write this Sunday morning, from my cubical, as yet again, I've had to work another weekend. ****ARGH****

Of course if you pay a little extra you can get a remote control to allow you to zoom in, add Night Vision, IR or UV filters and of course Still and Video capture with Blue tooth downloads :)

Don't laugh, if they get the chip to work that would all be possible !
Then the question comes up if Doctors will offer to replace healthy retinas for the extra features; sort of like cosmetic surgery but to improve features instead of looks.

Ah yes, and Google/YouTube could add an EyeLive channel (if we include a GPS receiver your Location, Direction and Speed data could be overlaid ); the Apple version will be called iLive of course :)

Soccer, Football, Formula One and the 2020 Olympics could then offer a view thru the competitor's eyes.
Now that would be a reason to watch :)

And you know that certain Studios in a seedy part of Hollywood would (wood?) pick up on that too.

lol at the borg comments, its nothing more than a eye enhancement. Its in no way going to be a step forward in robotics. But it will be a leap forward for medical industry.

It would be neat if it would be adopted with micro computer properties. (=email, videos/pictures, internet, txt messages)

Sounds wonderful until the manufacturers decide to increase revenue through pop-up advertisements.

[citation][nom]CaedenV[/nom]we have knee replacements, heart replacements, now the prospect of eye replacements; and yet we cannot cure bad grammar by those who are paid to write...[/citation]

LOL; this from a guy from a guy who begins his sentence with lower case :)

I want a brain implant that lets me take photo/video directly as I see it. Back to the topic at hand though, this is definitely good news for all the visually impaired individuals out there. Imagine an individual blind all their life finally being able to see again.
