New bionic eye for the totally blind

New Australian system bypasses the body's visual mechanics entirely as images are plugged straight into the brain.

    Engineers in Australia have developed a technology they hope will allow totally blind people to see.

    Unlike bionic-eye projects elsewhere, the Melbourne-based team's system bypasses the body's visual mechanics entirely.

    Patients do not even need eyes as the images are plugged straight into the brain.

    Andrew Thomas reports from Melbourne.
