Brainport vision device helps blind man to see with his tongue

Erik Weihenmayer is the first blind person to climb Everest and the Seven Summits, experiments in collaboration with the Brainport Vision Device, a revolutionary new technology enabling a blind person to see with his tongue. Mounted on Erik's head is a small video camera which translates visual information to a credit card-size tongue display. Four-hundred tiny pixels present electrical patterns on his tongue, which Erik's brain then interprets as a visual picture in three-dimensional space. He uses the device to read words and numbers on note cards, to play tic-tac-toe and stone-paper-scissors with his daughter, and to rock climb. To learn more about Erik, go to www.TouchTheTop.com .

Mihaela Cristina Radoi's insight:

A blind person climbed the Seven Mountains (including Kilimanjaro and Everest) using the Brainport Vision Device, a technology enabling a blind person to see with his tongue. There are no frontieres, if there is will.

This is about a blind men who uses a machine that connects to the tongue to make out patterns so that he can see. This is truly amazing. We have this now, imagine what other things we'll invented in the future. Maybe one day we can make the deaf hear without a cochlear implant.
