'Bionic eye' monitors industrial assembly lines

Scientists are developing a 'bionic eye' that could be used by manufacturers to improve the monitoring of industrial assembly lines. At the back of the human eye is a specialised layer of cells called the retina, which captures light information. This information is then converted into electrical signals and sent via the optic nerve to the brain, where a visual image is produced.
