Jan 2020 – Today Steve Jobs announced the spinout of a new company, MYEYES, a most unusual announcement at his annual keynote. Mr. Jobs took this very unusual step due to his belief that the new software programming approach represented by MYEYES technology will revolutionize the treatment of many sensory impairments. MYEYES will release its first product on 1 July 2020 after it completes a fast track certification process with the US Government’s Health and Biotech Laboratory.
Some history will help you understand the magnitude of this announcement.
Historically most sensory impairments such as failing eye sight or hearing lose has been treated in one of two ways. Mechanical augmentation, both external(eye glasses, hearing aids etc) or internal(surgical repair or implants) and biologically with pharmaceuticals and recently dna driven repairs. MYEYES represents a third approach that has been in the works for the last 20 years, reprogramming the brain to modify signal inputs received from sensory organs by the brain.
