"The display has not yet been turned on while the rabbits are wearing the lenses," he said. So far, the group has been able to light up and control a single pixel.
I suppose no one told them that rabbits can't see very well, and are in fact very farsighted.
That probably won't be a problem yet, as they don't appear to have a focusing mechanism. Until they start slicing eyes open to put them on the retina side, anyway.
I suppose they might try to do some magic in software.
I think you missed the point. They put the contact lens into the rabbit's eyes for twenty minutes with the display turned off so they could see if the rabbit's eyes were not harmed by the contact lenses. It's simply "animal product testing."
Coming this fall:
"What is it, 5iver?"
"The fields... they're covered in pixels!"
"Yes, two of them."
