MattSparkes writes "A new bionic eye could restore vision to the profoundly blind. A prototype was tested on six patients and 'within a few weeks all could detect light, identify objects and even perceive motion again.

This computer processes the image information and wirelessly transmits it to a tiny electronic receiver implanted in the wearer's head."
