Graphene-Based Artificial Retina Sensor Being Developed

Researchers at Germany’s Technical University of Munich are developing graphene sensors like the ones depicted above to serve as artificial retinas. The atom-thick sheet of linked carbon atoms is being used because it is thin, flexible, stronger than steel, transparent and electrically conductive. 

TUM physicists think that all of these characteristics and graphene’s compatibility with the body make it a strong contender to serve as the interface between a retinal prosthetic that converts light to electric impulses and the optic nerve. A graphene-based sensor could help blind people with healthy nerve tissue see, they say.

in Canada they don’t pronounce Z as "zee"

they pronounce it as "zed" and that is crazy to me

it sounds like they made a typo when they invented it

They do that everywhere in the world that’s not America. We do that here in the UK too.
America is weird man.

Answer
  • Question: Would you guys ever add another admin? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    thewritershelpers:

    YES! 

    Actually me and H have decided it is time to add new admins, but this time I want to do it slightly differently. 

    What I think we lack now that made us good before is articles. We used to write around an article a week, at least and now we don’t really do any. 

    Here is the admin application. I will make a full post on this later. Application is open from now for just over a week. We will be looking for around four people, previous experience, qualifications and whatever doesn’t matter to us. Personality and a want to help is far more important!

Writing as a Lifestyle

When you decide to take writing seriously, you’re making a lifestyle choice as much as you are making a career choice. As a writer, you may have to change up your living conditions. If you haven’t made any sells yet, that might mean stretching your $20 or leaving…
