Bionic Eye Technology to Unveil Soon

Bionic Eye Technology to Unveil Soon

It seems that soon there will be a direct-to-brain bionic eye implant prepared for human trials next year as it has been revealed that Australian researchers would soon be testing full system prototype of the bionic eye implant this month.

It was sheer efforts from Monash Vision Group, which is a group of about 50 researchers, which made it possible. "The really exciting part is that we are taking those chips and putting them into the package that will actually represent something like what will go into the patient”, said MVG general manager Jeanette Pritchard.

The microchips are reported to be implanted directly on the surface of a patient's visual cortex, which is located in the lower part of the brain. As far as financial backing is concerned, $8 million grant has been sanctioned for this work.

Till now, every single component was developed, but it is for the first time that all the components were joined to form something really worth waiting for.

There are fair chances that the first full system prototype testing would consume some more months to finish, and it is also expected that a second system prototype would be developed by the end of this year.
