This eye implant may not be the first one Trend Hunter has featured, but it certainly is the first to actually be put into practice. It has thus far changed the lives of three people who have been suffering from blindness.

Developed by professor Eberhart Zrenner of Germany's University of Tuebingen, this groundbreaking eye implant may not be perfect, but it has reversed blindness to the point that these individuals can now identify and find objects in front of them.
