Currently solar energy not only helps improve the environment and health of our planet. But now it also involved in improving the quality of life of blind people? Restore their vision.

A group of scientists at Stanford University, California, USA, developed a bionic eye solar energy using solar energy, the goal is to restore sight to people blinded by retinal degenerative diseases that do not undergo risky operations and without using cables.

It is an artificial vision system powered by sunlight, implemented a super sunglasses, a microchip and a minicomputer under the retina.

The system operates similar to how the work of current solar panels instead of powering a home, it flows into the retina.

Tiny solar panels
installed on the back of the eye, a video camera is installed behind the retina, and records what is happening in the eye. The panels to operate in a very small amount of infrared light enough to provide an electrical pulse to the optic nerve to the brain, in the form of visual information.

The solar bionic eye was tested in the laboratory with the retinas of mice. The results were positive, now the next step is to test the technology in humans.

The technology is difficult to understand and more difficult to explain with so little information. It is clear that the bionic eye gift is being tested, hopefully soon know more about this new technology that is more than interesting.

I didn't know that! That's a good news. If solar panels installation is gaining its popularity to help the environment, no doubt pretty soon eye solar installation will too for the blind people. Super cool!
