Bionic eye to help the blind see

The Monash Vision Group at Australia’s Monash University is developing a direct-to-brain bionic eye system that allows blind people to see.

Sounds like a worthwhile ambition...at least at first sight, but were I blind, I would never let anyone implant a chip in my brain, regardless of the quality of sight it might provide, because someone would hack it and have me seeing pink elephants.

It kind of reminds me of Geordi La Forge on Star Trek, except his glasses required contacts which were implanted in the side of his head, rather than being wireless. Since these are wireless, even if no one hacked a person's mind, they could intercept the signals and be able to track a person where ever they went.

... providing they're within range.

Worst case scenario is that they hijack your sigh, so you see what they want you to see.

The thing is, that things such as this always start out sounding worthwhile, but after a time, they will find reasons to plant chips in everyone's brain. Instead of worrying about computer security, it will be mind control, without any means of security.

Then we have to make sure we know how to secure the system. If it's dedicated it should be fairly simple, but then again even pacemakers can be hacked

Secure system...no such thing. Obviously, this is not a DIY job that the person involved has any control over, any "security" that was placed in the chip would be subject to being hacked by the powers that be. If a computer can't be secure, then I definitely don't want a system in my head that can be tampered with, by hackers or anyone else.

yeah but would you rather be able to see or be blind forever to your death wondering what's going on visually in the world?

I would rather be blind than be forced to "see" things as someone else decided. I don't see a problem with technical items implanted for other medical purposes, like a pacemaker, but that is about the limit of it.
