Description

Meet the brain port device, a device that allows the blind to see using electrodes attached to the tongue, the electrodes generate a sensation of sparkles in the mouth and transfers the signals to the brain. The device works in a way that allows the nerves to send signals to the vortex that generates the image, it’s a bypass, normally the nerves transmit signals via the optical nerve, now since the person is blind the optical nerve is not functioning therefore the brain port acts as a bypass and the nerves are transmitted through the tongue to the vortex, so basically the brain is rewired in a different format. A new technology that could actually change the way people live.
