It's not rude unless you take it super cereal seriously.

lighten up.. Well unless you can't see light that is.

hahaha.. Sorry I'm just being goofy.

You're more than welcome to leave the thread.

Or continue to angrily comment....for some odd reason.

I appreciate your passion...I think


Your sense of humour is unparalleled.

I warned you of the immense significance of this thread topic!

"For once in my life" I'm "overjoyed" you're taking the "higher ground" on this subject.

But I am still "superstitious"!

I bet he'd see even better without those dark glasses, eh?



Roy Orbison laughs at him (if Roy were alive). By the way, I saw Stevie reading a newspaper in an airport (sarcasm).

He works parttime as a musician and becomes Daredevil by night. Good for him. I don't think he fakes his blindness though. There is also the possibility that he is able to see through new technology. The leaps in these departments in the past few years were insane.

Wow. I remember years ago going to a Rolling Stones concert where the opening act was unannounced. I really wasn't expecting anyone significant, then was blown away amazed when Stevie Wonder came out! I don't even remember much about the Stones concert. There was a crew who would set him up with a different instrument to play for each song. I was a huge Stevie fan and am so grateful I had a chance to experience this.

I sure didn't notice anything that would indicate he had normal vision.

Interesting.

There is no date on that article so Im not sure what came first: the mic catch or the implant. Not to mention the implant does provide the patient with sight as we know it, and it takes practice to interpret the information received from the implant. Nonetheless, good info. Thanks!

From that persecutes article:

Afree Stevie Wonder received the implant he described what he saw when his implant was turned on like this: “It’s a pulsing light, it’s not like regular vision where it’s, like, constant, it’s the flash, and I’ve got to be able to interpret the changes in that shape.” “It’s crude, but it’s significant,”

Wonder went on to say in a video from the Mayo Clinic. Stevie’s doctor, Raymond Iezzi, says his patient reconstructs a scene and objects in front of him with the information from the electrodes, plus his visual memory and cognitive skills.

The Argus II isn’t able to restore completely normal, sharp vision, but the functionality it does give back to people who previously could only perceive bright light is not negligible.


It's not exactly "seeing" at all.

"Argus retinal prosthesis, also known as a bionic eye, is an electronic retinal implant manufactured by the American company Second Sight Medical Products. It is used as a visual prosthesis to improve the vision of people with severe cases of retinitis pigmentosa. The Argus II version of the system was approved for marketing in the European Union in March 2011, and it received approval in the US in February 2013 under a humanitarian device exemption. The Argus II system costs about US$150,000, excluding the cost of the implantation surgery and training to learn to use the device."
