The Bionic Eye – Sight Through Tech
Most of us can walk down the street and see everything that’s around us. We can see the wind blowing through the trees, clouds in a blue sky, people kissing in a park, and a baseball being hit through the air that sends thousands of people to their feet like ripples through an ocean. But for the people who can’t see anything, they can only wonder.
If you’ve been blind from the moment of birth, sight is unimaginable. How do you explain the color blue to a person that has no concept of color? Well, some very promising scientists over in the UK are working on a bionic eye to give sight to the blind.
Scientists at a North East university are working to help “restore sight” to people who have lost their eyes.
