"A California researcher predicts that an artificial eye is 'in sight' in the near future. Dr Armand Tanguay Jr, professor of electrical engineering at the University of Southern California is currently building the world's first implantable camera for the blind.

In addition, Dr Tanguay predicts, by 2014 we will see the introduction of a 1,000-electrode implant that will allow the blind to recognise faces and read half-inch type."
