Did I ask you ? No.
And why respond and waste your time ?
I was thinking of 'retraining' the visual parts in the brain, adapting them
to recieve
information from visual stimulus; ie CCD's or other light-receiving devices.
Think of it as connecting the video-camera directly to your brain, but gives
information than we're capable of today.

Did I mention anything when the question is about connecting electronics to
the brain ? No, so you are flawed in your reasoning.

Yes yes, boring !!!!
That is nothing NEW.
