So tried a nexus 7 for a day... I think I would like either an iPad or a Nexus 7. Each does things the other doesn't.

Very lightly hit a deer on the way to work this morning. Deer, and vehicle, are fine. Driver, a little bit paniced. Led to a series of offputing events too. Glad to be home.

Laser-powered bionic eye that gives 576 pixel grayscale vision to the blind

"The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision." - H. Keller

The Bio-Retina plops a 24×24 resolution sensor right on top of the damaged retina, and 576 electrodes on the back of the sensor implant themselves into the optic nerve. An embedded image processor converts the data from each of the pixels into electrical pulses that are coded in such a way that the brain can perceive different levels of grayscale.

The first clinical trials on humans are scheduled for 2013... goo.gl/MNp5i

Curious traverler along the road of life and technology
Introduction
I'm who I am. I sometimes shove my foot in my mouth, and make human errors, but I try to learn from my own mistakes and those of others.

I also do a variety of things in my spare time, including some photo-editing, 3D modeling, scripting, and gaming.
