!! OMG, the future is here: Bionic Eye !!

A 73-year-old man who lost his sight 30 years ago has regained some vision thanks to a bionic eye made by Second Sight:

It works by using a camera and video processor mounted on sunglasses to send captured images to a tiny receiver placed on the outside of a patient’s eye. 73-year-old Ron lost his site in his 40s thanks to retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited disorder that causes progressive peripheral vision loss. He is one of 18 patients across the world taking part in Second Sight’s experiment.

He can’t see much, but he can apparently see lines in the road and sort his socks now. Eat your heart out Geordi La Forge!
