eSight 3 headset restores sight like in Star Trek

Have you seen Star Trek: The Next Generation? I'm personally sort of a fan of it, and have probably seen each episode a few times (yes, I do have too much free time in my hands). In the series ship's engineer La Forge is wearing a headset called Visor that helps him see (even though yes, he can see sort of a matrix-like world, or okay, maybe more of a world as seen through infrared camera or something).

Now, a real-world alternative has been created to Visor, and it's called eSight 3 which can help vision issues for many legally blind people. It comes with a high-resolution camera and optical prisms, the video image is then presented to the user.

"I remember putting them on and looking up and I saw my husband who I'd been married to for eight years and had never seen before," said one user of eSight 3 to Cnet.

According to the CEO of eSight, the tech has better than 50 percent chance of working with all eye sight conditions and to try if it works, you just need to try it on. Nothing else needed.

The cost of eSight is around $15,000.
