Remember the Eyeborg guy we told you about a couple weeks ago? Well, as expected when you’re a scrappy little team trying to make scientific history, there have been some setbacks. You may have seen on in the video, you know, with the smoke? Well, the main guy decided that in the meantime they should at least get something in there. And of course it’s a Terminator-style LED.

It’s “purely aesthetic” except that it tests the battery life and sealing of the eye capsule they’re working on, so it’s not just a vanity thing. Retina blindness or eye damage is the easiest kind of blindness to remedy by a technological solution, but that’s like saying K2 is easier to climb than Everest. Always good to hear even the smallest advances in cybernetics, though.
