Lieber früher als später. Im übrigen denke ich in der Tat, da tun sich Möglichkeiten auf, da das Auge erstaulnmlicherweise eine "einfache" Sache ist.

Doug Vining Decoding the human eye

...approximating normal vision – and possibly enabling people to read – will require devices that can deliver electrical current with much greater control and precision. A new chip densely packed with electrodes, developed by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), is the first step in that direction.

Doug Vining How soon will we have real bionic eyes?

The advantages of real bionic eyes, with superior vision, are obvious, not only for the blind or partially sighted, but ultimately for sportsmen, soldiers, drivers, anyone who needs superior vision in their daily lives.

This review of the state of the science in developing bionic eyes from MIT shows how we are progressing towards the scenario outlined in our MindBullet from five years ago. It's just a matter of time.

Neil Jacobsohn Bionic hearing is on the way!

Bionic hearing? I'm all for it! Just imagine being able to block out the sound of that crying baby, or that annoying yapping person in the aircraft seat behind you! Experimentation with new hearing devices are not aimed at the hard-of-hearing, but at everyone.

Doug Vining Bionic eyes being tested

A decade ago we wrote about bionic eyes giving people 'better than human' eyesight. We've also published MindBullets about upgrading humans - because we can! Now it seems these future scenarios are becoming reality, as so often happens. A new bionic lens for cataract patients will not only restore their sight - it promises to improve on the best natural eyesight. What if someone who can afford it, but doesn't need it medically, requests this treatment to say, improve their aim in professional sports like golf or cricket? Is that like taking enhancing drugs?
