Flat microscope for the brain could help restore lost eyesight

Although still a prototype, scientists have created a flat microscope (known at the FlatScope) that can transmit information directly to your brain.  The FlatScope is being developed in hopes of returning a person’s eyesight or hearing back to them.

A closer look at the iPhone 8’s facial recognition feature

Lately, there has been speculation that Apple’s iPhone 8 will include a facial recognition feature.  The facial recognition software used, Realface, creates a 3D representation of a person’s face, making it more secure and accurate.   Imagine being able to unlock your phone with your face. That would be pretty cool, don’t you think?
