Bionic Eyes and Early Success

I occasionally post articles on mechanical ways of defeating the depredations of aging. It seems that progress on that front is slower than regenerative medicine; which is probably fine. My sense is that it will be considerably harder to duplicate parts of the human body in other materials than it will be to figure out how to make the human body repair itself. In any case, this article from the BBC gives insight into the state of the art in artificial sight -- surprisingly advanced and gratefully received by the beneficiaries of these devices.
