[QUOTE=BCell;27538340]Hey we humans at least can see colours, unlike other animals. We could see stuff kilometers away.[/QUOTE] And in theory we can see a single photon of light, meaning we can spot fires and the like from hundreds of kilometers away. Nut the fact of the matter is our eyes are average, they aren't fantastic. [editline]22nd January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Wayword;27561232]dude. if we saw every wave form then we'd be so overwhelmed with sensory input that our brain couldn't process it. it would be a big garbed mess of useless SHIT[/QUOTE] There's a shrimp that can see almost every kind of light, the only ones it can't see are the ones that would kill it like Gamma and X-rays and microwaves, it sees both polarised and non polarised light too. I think it's the pistol shrimp, in which case it also causes explosive bubble cavitation with it's wankers claw, which is just fucking badass.
Didnt somebody recently make a documentary with a camera like this? Like some dude was blind in one eye so he decided to film his life through an implanted camera where his blind eye was.
[QUOTE=Simski;27538709][img_thumb]http://www.tnthobbies.co.uk/AutHughBorg.jpg[/img_thumb] It's only a matter of time. Seriously though, it won't surprise me if we'll use electronic implant to enhance our vision or to make blind people able to see again in the future.[/QUOTE] At first, I thought you were saying we would give blind people implants that let them see into the future. Then I read your post a few more times.
I really hope they discover the technology to replace organic eyes with electronic ones soon. That would be cool as hell. No more worrying about cataracts or getting blinded by light or debris or having your vision slowly deteriorate over time.
[QUOTE=superdinoman;27538066]What if I want augmented vision?[/QUOTE] We don't have a way to attach any mechanical device we make to the optical nerve. Your bionic eye might be amazing, but you're brain would see nothing.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;27553590]Also, I don't see this gigantic blind spot you're trying to talk about.[/QUOTE] [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blind_spot_(vision[/url]) [url]http://www.vonrechenberg.ch/blindspots.html[/url] [editline]23rd January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=BmB;27553636]The blind spot is, I think, where the optical nerve connects to the eyeball, so no rods or cones can grow in that spot. You don't see it because you're used to it.[/QUOTE] You don't see it because you have two eyes. The brain automatically fills in the missing bit with similar surrounding material when closing one eye, which is why you don't notice it.
God damn it, I write scifi and one of my characters has something like this. Now it's not original. :frown: [editline]23rd January 2011[/editline] But then again, I found it it's been done before :sigh:
If they want to use these things with currently available tech, they should build these into a set of specialty glasses. The camera remains on the outside, with small projectors filling the inside with our surroundings, plus a customizable HUD that is powered by a device in our pocket, sort of like how smart phones can be customized with apps. You could then have a wireless device with a weak transmitter surgically implanted, tied into the muscles that control eye movement. When you look to the left, for example, the muscles cause the transmitter to broadcast to a receiver in the side of the glasses which then adjusts the cameras. It could even be programmed to adjust the projectors' center of focus to the direction your eyes are currently pointed, so that there would be no delay between looking and seeing. Zoom is then controlled with buttons on the top and bottom of the right "lens." Ideas are a dime a dozen, but I wouldn't be surprised if something like this is commonplace within a few decades.
when can i get one stuck in my head please i want it

Your bionic eye might be amazing, but you're brain would see nothing.[/QUOTE] Not yet but the collective knowledge on nerve cells has gotten much better. It is only a matter of time before we begin combining nanotech with biological technology. Plus you could use a built in computer to translate the Infrared and UV spectrum into visible light so the brain can understand it.
Damn it, make one that can replace your own eye, then sign me up for it.

It makes up a miniscule portion of the retina. Plus EVERY vertibrate that has eyes has a blind spot. Saying our eyes are shit because we have one is fairly stupid. The blind spot is just the bit where the optic nerve connects to the retina and no optic cones or rods form there.
I can see us having super soldiers in 20 or 30 years.
[QUOTE=bigdan;27601223]I can see us having super soldiers in 20 or 30 years.[/QUOTE] Due to the rapid increase in technological advancement Im more for the 10 to 15 year mark.
How can we tell visually that it is better than human eyes
[QUOTE=SnakeSolid;27601342]How can we tell visually that it is better than human eyes[/QUOTE] You cant, thats what you use a computer for.
[QUOTE=Canuhearme?;27536666]My vision is augmented.[/QUOTE] That's why you wear sunglasses inside.:v:
I heard somewhere the human eye could theoretically, assuming you were in a completely flat world with no obstacles, spot the light of a single candle several miles away.

There are other issues too. How do you power the eye? And can the eye be reconnected to the muscle tissue that controls eye movement? I'd like to see it become a reality, but for now I'm just going to be really careful with my eyes.

[media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3LnyP2pp_s[/media] Most of this media is a couple years old and as of 2010 direct wiring into the optic nerve has been achieved, still the camera quality is piss poor and the most people get are fuzzy dots and in many cases no color.

[QUOTE=ChristopherB;27593478]We don't have a way to attach any mechanical device we make to the optical nerve. Your bionic eye might be amazing, but you're brain would see nothing.[/QUOTE] Wrong, besides we can bypass the optical nerve, we have invented glasses with cameras that transfer the signal directly to the area of the brain that interprets signals from the eye.
I'd rather have it with optical zoom, with a small lens it wouldn't look bad.

[QUOTE=superdinoman;27601466]You cant, thats what you use a computer for.[/QUOTE] Why would you need a computer there's fairly simple methods for determining the focal power of a lens.
I need one of these.
