Bionic eye gives blind man sight


news.bbc.co.uk

Ron, 73, had the experimental surgery seven months ago at London's Moorfield's eye hospital.

He says he can now follow white lines on the road, and even sort socks, using the bionic eye, known as Argus II.

It uses a camera and video processor mounted on sunglasses to send captured images wirelessly to a tiny receiver on the outside of the eye.

Ok, this is getting freaky.
Let me be clear, I think this technology is cool and I am all for it.
I just worry, as with ANY thechnology, what sort of evil this could be used for. If we follow this all of the thru, where will we find ourselves in a hundred years?

How about an elective surgery to have your eyes removed and replaced with eyes that can see in the dark/nightvision or how about eyes that are better than an eagles which could read a newspapper a mile away?

This would obviously be cool, but, where wuld it end?
Are we all going to be a mix of Dart Vader and the 6 Million Dollar Man?

I think so.
The day man thought of the idea of becoming a cyborg he wrote it into his destiny.

Cool story.

What was it that Jordan Maxwell and Alex Jones said earlier this year, again? "It's all about the creation of The New Man, and the old Man will go bye-bye."
