Denis Kuleshov, CEO of Sensor-Tech, demonstrated a brain implant designed to restore vision to blind people. According to him, Elvis technology connects the brain to video cameras and transmits the image to the brain directly.

The implant is placed in the visual cortex of the brain and stimulates it with small currents. The band with two cameras, which capture the image and transmit it in real time to a microcomputer attached to the belt, acts as eyes. The microcomputer analyzes the image, highlights the contours of important objects and transfers the processed frames to the implant.

Currently the trials on animals are being carried out. The developers hope to get approval for clinical trials involving volunteers by 2023.
