Brain chips to help the blind!

I was doing my usual lunchtime news browse and found an article of interest on brain chips. Apparently, a Utah University has developed a silicone chip that implants in the brain to help cure nervous system disorders like paralysis and blindness. It has been successful in animals and they want to trial it on humans.

I'm not sure how helpful this would be for Stargardt's but they are saying it could cure blindness. Another option to be followed!

Here's the link to the news article.
