Not So Kewel Science?

It was only Monday that I told you about a scientific development – researchers in Australia had developed a “bionic eye” (See, Kewel Science) which essentially is a camera attached to the retina. Yesterday, I saw this headline: Engineers develop enhanced vision; GPS tracking tech for your brain.

Oops. Did that say “GPS tracking” and ” in your brain”? Yikes!

A team of researchers from Vienna have unveiled cutting-edge technology that combines the Internet, global positioning satellite tracking technology and biofeedback to augment and enhance your natural vision.

“Augment” and “enhance”. Hmmm. This sounds a bit more Steve Austin than Monday’s article.. and a lot scarier!

This is a story well-worth reading in its entirety. The full article is here. There’s a neat video there too…
Kinda gives me the willies… big time.
