I agree Lyon. I believe much of this technology discussed in this article is not that far off. If amazes me how far human beings have come in the last one hundered years in understanding the way the body works. Combine this with the amazing pace of new technologies and it really seems thewir are some huge breakthroughs on the way.!!!

Lyon wrote:... it doesn't take a long stretch to imagine that, instead of controlling external things, in cases like optical neuritis, you could use the impulses from the working sensor (the eye) and bypass the damaged optic nerve altogether by sending the signals directly to the vision sensors. Using technology already available to move huge amounts of information wirelessly (internet) makes it seem this kind of thing isn't much more than a matter of implementing it.


Check out the January 2010 issue of National Geographic: Merging Man and Machine - The Bionic Age. So the future is now...kinda.

The online version below is supposed to be an "interactive" thing, but it wouldn't load on my computer and locked it up instead. (Grumble, grumble...goshdarnit!! These new-fangled inventions!) Not sure what you'll get. But...you can always read it in the magazine like I did - about bionic retinas & stuff. :) Cool!

Dx'd with MS & HNPP (hereditary peripheral neuropathy) 7/03 but must have had MS for 30 yrs before that. I've never taken meds for MS except 1 yr experiment on LDN. (I found diet, exercise, sleep, humor, music help me the most.)
