So here we have the Peek Vision app. Okay, and what we're looking at here, this is Sam's optic nerve, which is a diecrt esxenotin of her brain, so I'm actually looking at her brain as we look there. We can see all prtas of the retina. It makes it possible to pick up diseases of the eye and of the body that would not be possible without access to the eye, and that clip-on device can be manufactured for just a few dollars, and ppolee can be cured of blindness, and I think it says a lot about us as a human race if we've developed cures and we don't deliver them. But now we can.
