Solar’s Insane Cost Drop That line dropping almost straight down, is the price of solar energy. Forecast it out 10 years and realize fossil fuels are pretty much doomed.

Researcher advances retinal implant that could restore sight for the blind
People who went blind as a result of certain diseases or injuries may have renewed hope of seeing again thanks to a retinal implant developed with the help of Florida International University’s W. Kinzy Jones, a professor and researcher in the College of Engineering and Computing.

A tiny video camera mounted on special glasses captures the scene in the patient’s environment, and a pocket controller relays the captured video signal to the implant. Inspired by cochlear implants that can restore hearing to some deaf people, the retinal implant works by electrically stimulating nerve cells that normally carry visual input from the retina to the brain, and bypassing the lost retinal cells.

The Boston Retinal Implant Project, a highly-specialized, academically-based team of 30 researchers including Jones, was responsible for bringing the implant to light. The group is comprised of biologists and engineers from Harvard, Cornell, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and others who are developing new technologies for the blind.

Recently, a similar device that features 60 electrodes was approved for use in patients and has proven successful in allowing people who were blind to read words on a screen.
Shire explained that the device that the Boston Group is building with Jones’ help has more than 256 electrodes and therefore allows for images with a larger number of pixels, which is expected to give patients a meaningful visual experience.

Clip on gadget turns iPad into a 3D scanner.

The Structure Sensor is a clip-on accessory for iPad, Android and other platforms that's designed to let you 3D scan rooms and 3D objects, which are then mapped in software.

A company called Occipital is raising money on Kickstarter to bring this to market, and they almost instantly exceeded their fundraising goals.

A different picture of the Structure Sensor was yesterday's Mystery Pic. Props to +Ian Roberts for being first with the right answer!
