1. Augmented Human Vision
Google Glass shocked many because of how it was able to augment reality. While that’s cool, the Google Glass pales in comparison to the promise of having bionic eyes. The technologically tampered eyes aim to improve what the human eye can already see as well as correct damaged vision. One doctor in British Columbia claims his Bionic lense can see three times better than 20/20, only takes an eight minute operation to implant and will be ready in two years.
It’s still premature to say what augmented human vision will actually be like once the technology goes mainstream. But, if there’s one thing we’re sure of, it’s that it should be pretty cool.
