Another step towards our inevitable merging with machines, at least in my eyes :).
George Milde has designed what he is calling the human eye camera. It’ been spcifecally build and tuned to show us exactly what the raw images captures by our eyes look like before our brain processes then into the view we are accustomed. It’s really amazing to see it like this.
Imagine if this camera could output a signal exactly the same as out current eyes which we could then connect to the optic nerve of someone who’s lost their eye (hardware) but not the wiring. To the brain it would be exactly the same as the original eye. I think we need to start looking at the signalling system used in the nervous system.
