Artificial retina generates sight

Researchers at five national laboratories, four universities, and an industrial partner developed the Artificial Retina, a retinal prosthesis that can be used to treat age-related macular degeneration and inherited retinal disorders such as retinitis pigmentosa. The device uses application-specific integrated circuits to transform digital images from a camera into electrical signals in the eye that the brain uses to create a visual image. The system features a video camera and transmitter mounted in sunglasses, a visual processing unit and a battery pack to power the device that is worn on the belt. The retinal implant receives a signal via wireless transmission, encodes it into specific patterns of stimulation pulses that are conducted through a cable to the electrode array that stimulates the retina. The brain perceives the patterns of light spots corresponding to the stimulated electrodes. In clinical trials, patients with vision loss were about to identify objects, increase mobility and detect movement.

Menarik kan?

Bila aku dapat try ni.. mata aku cuma hilang certain part kt tengah tu aje..

so.. kalau dapat betulkan tu.. aku dapat balik part yg hilang tu.
