MIT creates microchip to restore vision in blind people

Not that I’m blind, but I so want a cyborg eye: “Using wireless technology, eyeglasses equipped with a camera and the chip, scientists say they should someday be able to restore at least some vision to people who suffer from retinitis pigmentosa or age-related macular degeneration , two of the leading causes of blindness.” 

The technology is still in the testing phase, but MIT researchers hope it will be ready within three years.
