Apparently scientists have now implanted an experimental device in two patients. It's a camera system that sends information directly to the optic nerve. Of course the picture isn't exactly crystal clear but it does give some hope to people who experimental degeneration and damage.

The Really cool part is, if this technology can be developed to provide clear vision, it might also be able to pick up different ranges of the EM spectrum. If StarTrek is any indication, it won't be much of a fashion trend.

Still, I'd put up with the looks just for the kicks of having built in UV, infared, nightvision, and other such perks.
