You dont need an implant. Its easy to make diy IR detector, i sense something sinister [/quote] That's right, lugging around a massive backpack of technical gear and having giant cameras hanging off your head while wearing some kind of helmet is really better than a little computer hooked up to your mechanical but otherwise normal looking eyes, from the inside of your head. Which would you prefer? Looking like a freak, or looking like everyone else, perfectly normal? [/quote] Freak? Normal? You already judge by looks. I don't know about you but i worry about having something inside my body which wasn't originally part of me from birth. [/quote]
Scientists have created a "sixth sense" by creating a brain implant through which infrared light can be detected.
Although the light could not be seen lab rats were able to detect it via electrodes in the part of the brain responsible for their sense of touch.
Similar devices have previously been used to make up for lost capabilities, for example giving paralysed patients the ability to move a cursor around the screen with their thoughts.
