    Israeli-based Nano Retina has developed nanotech bionic retina implant device that restores sight to the vision impaired affected by macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and other diseases. The operation to install the electrode-laden implant takes a mere half hour under local anesthetic.

    Stem-cell research in the US has been hampered by the efforts of religious extremists. It's most unfortunate...
