High-tech shades could give blind people sight

Researchers at Monash University in Australia are perfecting a wireless "bionic eye" that could be effective in giving totally blind people a form of limited sight. The system uses a pair of computerized glasses to map basic shapes and outlines, which are then sent by a wireless link to a miniature implant in the wearer's brain. "The wireless link is key. When you want to work, you put on the headgear, but if you want to sleep at night, you take it off and there is no connector to lie on, no connector to leak or get damaged," said professor Arthur Lowery from the Monash Vision Group.
