The KISS study was performed by people from Ames Research Center, Glenn Research Center, Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Johnson Space Center, Langley Research Center, the California Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard University, the Naval Postgraduate School,University of California at Los Angeles, University of California at Santa Cruz, University of Southern California, Arkyd…
10/23/09 A mobile, four-wheeled platform, CYCLOPS can simulate the “visual” experience of a blind person who has been implanted with a visual prosthesis, such as an artificial retina, and thereby can be used as a research tool to help refine and enhance the design of visual prostheses. Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have created a remote-controlled robot that is able to simulate the “visual” experience of a blind person who has been implanted with a visual prosthesis, such as an artificial retina. An artificial retina consists of a silicon chip studded with a varying number of electrodes that…
