    That`s very interesting. But I`ve already seen the same thing except they put the electrodes in the back of the eyes and the camera on a bluky set of sunglasses.

    Gee, how quickly did the whole Glasses = Seeing thing get outdone. Forget all those cables and geeky glasses, we`ll just walk around with our tongues hanging out. That is almost as cool as the blind children who are born with the ability to see by clicking, much like a bat does.

    Well it seems easier than hooking cameras to your brain. Just pressing a small device to your tounge and you can take it away just as easy...sounds cool...Galileo how would you feel if i scooped your freakin eyes out??

    This should be kinda scary
    A bunch of blind people walking down streets with their tounges hanging out
    Kinda reminds me of the Descent
    Hopefully they dont try to eat anyone

    sweet. eventually i bet theyll go back to the glasses or else its gonna be a fake eye with a replaceable camera or something and itll turn out like that magnetic touch thing in fingers where they can feel if a wire is live or not before even touching it.

    wait, from the impression I got, their tongues wouldn`t be hanging out. The camera is not inside the mouth. That`s just the place they use to get the signals to the brain.

    *stands and applauds* I`m happy... I`m gonna go blind if my eyesight keeps deteriorating at the rate it is. Nice to know I might eventually have a real way to see again. (I think I`d die if I ever became blind. I rely really heavily on my eyesight. All I do is read and write!)

    WOW! That is exceedingly interesting if it works! I`m all for technology & having close friends who are blind, this would be incredble to say the least!

    To lighten such a story:
    How did Helen Keller burn her face?
    She answered the iron.
    How did she burn the other side?
    They called back.
