An Artificial Eye?A team of researchers led by Leilei Gu at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology may have achieved what was once thought impossible—the creation of an artificial eye. The implications this feat could have for people living with vision loss or blindness could be profound.
The researchers created a hemispherical arrangement of light-sensitive nanowires, which imitate photoreceptor cells in the human retina. Gu's device can produce images at higher resolutions than the human eye, not only helping humans but leading to advancements in robotics. The findings are published in the journal Nature.
