Researchers at the University of Minnesota have fully 3D printed a bionic eye, Science Daily reports.
The eye consists of an array of light receptors on a hemispherical surface. This discovery could someday help blind people see or sighted people to see better.
The research was published last month in Advanced Materials, a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering materials science.
"Bionic eyes are usually thought of as science fiction, but now we are closer than ever using a multi-material 3D printer," said Michael McAlpine, a co-author of the study and a professor at the University of Minnesota.
