i am trying to figure out a place for them for my kid. he is legally blind. but, he can see somewhat functionally right in front of his face. like a few feet max. he played a virtual reality game at an arcade the other day and it seemed to be ok. i assume they might have the ability to bring 3D distance into a more "in your face" 2D situationy type of thing.

I am sorry to hear that, guessing with the technology we have going now, hopefully they can find a work around for him.

I thought science has been able to wire directly into the visual area of the brain? I know this isn't really a good comparison to your son since he can see some objects.

It's been a progressive thing since birth. Wife and I are genetic dynamite. But, kids are amazingly resilient. They just adapt.
