USPTO awards U.S. Patent No. 8,000,000

Second Sight Medical Products is receiving some publicity for being awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,000,000. The patent claims a “visual prosthesis” that uses a camera that then sends a stimulating impulse to neural tissue in a subject’s eye.  Although Second Sight gets the patent, the research was at least partially paid by the U.S. Government.
