Submission + - Blind made to see again with artificial retina (

An anonymous reader writes: 'The blind will see again,' could be the motto of the Artificial Retina Project which is getting ready to implant a 60-pixel artificial retina chip into 10 blind patients later this year. 60-pixels doesn't sound like much, but the 1st gen artificial retina brought tears to the eyes of its six recipients, who claim they can now count large objects with just 16-pixels. If all goes well, a 200-pixel retina will be ready in three years, according to this story which says the chip used a 1.2-micron CMOS process with both power and video supplied wirelessly. Check it out in this story.
