Researchers have developed the first synthetic, soft tissue retina in a lab.
It’s made of soft water droplets and biological cell proteins that detect and react to light to create a grey scale image.
The research could revolutionize the bionic implant industry and the development of less invasive technologies to help treat degenerative eye conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa, which can lead to blindness.
Just like photography requires pixels to detect and react to light, vision relies on the retina performing the same function.
