Sonia Ng's curator insight, March 20, 6:12 AM

I think it is very creative and innovative. "A 3D printed version of the Noah’s Ark story allows children to feel the raindrops, the texture of the boat, the waves."This way kids who are visually impaired can still get a chance to 'see' the world.They can experience things like we do and they can get a chance to visualize in their minds what things are like.Although it may be quite thick and heavy to carry around  as they are 3D raised pictures,i think it is a nice thing for the visually impaired children to have as they get to a chance to read picture books like normal children.It will not be heavy as these 3D raised pictures can be printed on any surface and parents can choose the lighter books for convenience sake.However it will be thick as the 3D raised pictures have to bulge out for the visually impaired children to read.I think it is worth it as the visually impaired children get a chance to have a normal reading experience with picture books this way.

Scientists at University College London have successfully transplanted photoreceptor cells into blind eyes, thus maybe finding a method for curing blindness
Gust MEES's insight:

 

Watch the video above to see how the process works. The lab-grown photoreceptor cells are planted into the eyes of mice, where they successfully connect with nerves that send visual signals to the brain. The scientists now hope to replicate this process in humans.
