The video "Song of the Machine" explores the world of enhanced vision made possible by retinal prosthetics and augmented reality.
This film is a part of an ongoing collaboration between Superflux and neuroscientist Patrick Degenaar, whose pioneering work in optogenetic retinal prostheses aims to bring back sight to the blind. Degenaar, a researcher in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imprerial College London (UK), has presented several papers at the SPIE Biomedical Optics Symposium -- including this related paper: Seeing the light: a photonic visual prosthesis for the blind.
