AN IMPLANT that squirts chemicals into the back of your eye may not sound like much fun. But a solar-powered chip that stimulates retinal cells by spraying them with neurotransmitters could restore sight to blind people.

Unlike other implants under development that apply an electric charge directly to retinal cells, the device does not cause the cells to heat up. It also uses very little power, so it does not need external batteries.

Implications - Businesses that devote their efforts to using modern technological advancements to improve the quality of life for individuals will benefit in tremendous ways. They will be perceived as not only a highly skilled organization, but also as one that is compassionate.
