The Science Eye is an intriguing piece of technology. Developed by Science Corp., the bionic eye seeks to restore vision in patients suffering from a variety of vision-based diseases. It could also go one further and allow the wearer of it to control reality.
A paper detailing the new bionic eye is featured in bioRxiv, a pre-publish repository. A report on the technology is also available on Cnet‘s website. According to Cnet’s report, the bionic eye is a small device that will fit on top of and into human eyes, to help restore lost vision.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the idea of a bionic eye, either. We’ve seen bionic eye tests on humans . The Science Eye, however, is different in that the company behind the product seems to be pushing the manipulation of reality as well.
At least, that’s the idea presented thanks to several posters noted to appear around the Science Corp. labs, where Cnet reporters were able to learn more about the company’s bionic eye. Exactly how it might manipulate reality is unclear, or even if that’s the company’s goal.
However, it is fascinating to think that the Science Eye could not only help restore sight, but change how people see the world. It could be a tool to allow people with color blindness to see all the colors in the world. Science Corp. may have another idea of how to use this technology.
Though the answers to these questions are not clear, it is still a ways off before the Science Eye or other bionic eye devices are used in the real world. The company’s technology has been successful, but the risk is high, and we must wait to see what happens next.
