Bladders and eyes and surgery, oh my! A blind blue heron was recently operated on to fix its broken corneas. A surgeon covered the corneas with bits of pig bladder, which is known to help tissue regenerate. For now the bird gets to stay in a pond full of fish; here's hoping he'll recover enough to see 'em!
Our eyeball is focused on the new Google Glass. Will it be another redundant piece of technology? Will it change lives (for the worse)? We hear it's still being tested out by volunteers, but we can't wait to stare at it ourselves! Have an opinion of this fancy new gadget? Please share below!
Eyeballs may be the future in smartphone security! Instead of saving all of your passwords and login information in a text file (which we are always told to NEVER do, but we all do it anyway), you could just have your smartphone camera track your eye movements to sign in. The newer Samsung smartphones (and now LG, too) already track your eye movements so that the screen only dims once you look away. New smartphones will also let us scroll across pages with our eye movements, too!
