Stef Kriel Re: Picasa helps you see better - without glasses

Love the scenario - here are some more future perspectives from the optometric profession:
** A unique feature of the software it that, for drivers of self-drive vehicles on remote roads, it limits the enhancement facility to x3, as to the normal x 50 on automated highways on which human drivers are not permitted.
** The International Olympic Committee has already commissioned its ethics committee to develop scrambler software that will nullify the effect of PicPerfect in sports where it will give the athlete an unfair advantage.
** The military is working on an upgrade, dubbed "Chameleon" whereby the software will allow the user to uncouple his or her binocular vision and turn each eye independently via links to the frontal lobes, midbrain and vestibular center, without the confusion of diplopia (double vision). This will allow police and SWAT teams a "panoramic" view of their surrounds without cumbersome headgear or orientation confusion.

great article!

Then on: why not cross-checking actual visual impressions with the google-earth/-picture data-base and a historic environment data-base to travel virtually back to former times, enjoy historic (i.e. medieval) sensations and happenings as well as connect to future scenarios of people and environment.

Neil Jacobsohn End of blindness in sight

As technoloogy advances, so we move towards the end of blindness - just one of the many diseases that will be made history as we unlock more and more ways to heal ourselves. Now if only we could learn to remove mankind's propensity for war and violence....

Neil Jacobsohn I can see clearly now how blindness can be beaten!

It always amazes me how connected everything in this world is! A change of political leadership in the US, and one of the side effects is a flourishing of new research and new techniques in stem cell medicine. In the bad days of George Bush, you might remember, the development of stem cell lines was banned under pressure from fundamentalist Christian lobbyists. One of Barack Obama's first executive actions in office was to lift the ban. No doubt, the recipients of a new technique to treat blindness, described alongside, are deeply grateful.
Scientists predict confidently that in the future, blindness will be one of the "beaten diseases" as we slowly understand more and more about the mysteries of genetics.
At the same time, other technologies develop alongside - I was reminded of the MindBullet we published in November last year about Picasa!
