I wonder how long it will take for someone to figure out how to send images straight to the brain without the brain implant…
and then that opens the door for using it for VR, which would be amazing.
We look at our history and classify things in Ages; the bronze age, space age etc. I think the next age will be the Bionic age and it will begin when people start replacing perfectly functional body parts because the bionic ones are better.
Geordi Laforge did it first.
So, it’s not an eye, it’s the glasses that see. Can someone else wear the glasses and I can see what they see?
Sign me up. Take it all.
Where can I enroll for these? Im legally blind, so I’m pretty sure insurance will cover it.
It’s going to be so cool when people start swapping out body parts for bionic enhancements
There is a super rare condition where women can see a much larger spectrum of colors than the normal person. It’s called being tetrachromatic. And these people see 9 million more colors than normal people. Maybe that should come first.
My one and only hope is that we actually get to the Cyberpunk phase before civilization destroys itself. I want to technologically enhance my body more than anything….no, wait… A ****-bot. I want a ****-bot more than anything. Now I remember.
Most blind people would like regular vision and that is coming.
So it’s only 60 pixels? That’s not a lot at all, though obviously better than nothing.
Something like this has been done years back without surgery by putting an electrode on the tongue so people can see by feeling the sensation on their tongue
I hope not. “Predator Vision” looked like it worked less well than normal vision.
This looks better though. Hopefully it’ll have that cool sound effect, too.
That’s gonna suck, they can see me fart from a distance…..
I find it amazing that me and others can have there vision fixed like this. The issue I have is when I was just born the light burnt my optic nerve. I can see out of the eye but vary poorly. I find it insane that something like this can be done
Ok cool, but will it come with the sound effect?
No 1 app: Soldiers. Thermal vision, top secret and highly lockeddown intel fed directly and only into the brain of those who need to know, etc. Give it 30-50 years.
Artificial eyes so good the people contemplate getting rid of their real ones
I’ll only get that if it makes the snap/whoosh when I switch to thermal mode
Remindme! To pick up bionic predator eyes tomorrow
My worst nightmare, people on the street seeing when I fart.
I have really, really bad eyes, and have my entire life. Optometrists have always had no idea what’s wrong with my eyes other than “Your optic nerves look like they’re slightly crooked”. Without glasses or contacts, I can’t read my phone if it’s more than 3 inches away from my face. With glasses, contacts or laser eye surgery the best I can possibly see is 20/60.
I’m grateful to be able to see at all of course, I could be blind, but I would throw these eyes away in an instant if I could get robot eyes.
I love that song
“My vision is augmented”
Hold up! I didn’t know we had bionic eyes today.
RemindMe! 1 day “Predator vision arrives”
Holy crap. So they’re directly interfacing with your brain to show some sort of visual imagery. We’re might not be that far away from overlaying some sort of interace/heads up display with your vision.
I mean, it’ll require brain surgery or something, but who knows what the future will bring.
There was a post a few days ago about human augmentation and this kind of thing could be the start of neural augmentation. Just imagine being able to do complicated mathematical equations at a thought. Or improving your reaction time for driving. Maybe an integrated navigation system where you just think about where you want to go and then you *know* the directions.
But will they make that annoying clicking sound because that **** would get old, fast.
I’ll come back tomorrow, then.
