Researchers in Hong Kong have developed Bionic Eyes that have more vision than the human eye. This eye will be useful to use in the next 5 years. This electrochemical device will restore sight in the eyes of blind people.
According to a report in The Sun, the device is designed to look like a human eye. For this, the researchers have added the perfect structural design required. It is called the world’s first 3D artificial eyeball. The device is capable of surpassing all the functions of the human eye.
Researchers at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology say it can be used by anyone with partial or complete blindness.
An article on the study was published in the journal Nature. The article states that the device, which is as functional as the human eye, can hold high resolution. The tiny sensors in it can convert images, which are similar to the photosensitive cells in the human eye. These sensors are housed in a membrane made of aluminum and tungsten, in the shape of a semicircle intended to mimic the human retina.
The bionic eye, or bionic eyes, is basically a visual prosthesis, designed to be used as an experimental device for the blind.
Creating such devices before has been very challenging. But Xiang Fan, a professor at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, said the current research would lead to the creation of a full-fledged bionic eye. This technology will be practical and practical in the next 5 years. Researchers are planning clinical trials in animals and humans.
