She was known particularly for her performances of Brünnhilde (including at Bayreuth) and Isolde (opposite Jon Vickers at the Met). She had to give up performing in 1991 when her retinas began to detach from the sheer force of the vibrations from her larynx.
Cystisoma is an amphipod, a creature with two kinds of legs, and they are almost entirely translucent. One major exception is their pale orange retinas, which each take up about half of its head. (more…)
[Klakinoumi] wanted to use their Magsafe 1 charger from 2007 with their newer Macbook Pro Retina from 2012 — but it had a Magsafe 2 port. There were a few options on the table (buy an adapter, buy a new charger, cry) but those wouldn’t do. Show More Summary
By learning how zebrafish regenerate their retinas, researchers could figure out how to help humans do the same
Make text and icons easier to see on your iPhone with Display Zoom! Updated March 2017: Added gif display of Display Zoom and added information for iOS 10. Apple's 4.7- and 5.5-inch iPhone models have big, beautiful Retina HD displays...Show More Summary
Connecting pieces of information by finding a common thread often takes glaucoma researchers in unexpected directions. Zinc is one such thread that joined together different experts at Boston Children's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
A 3D reconstruction of a parrot's blood vessels and a microscopic image of a mouse's retina are among the winners of the 2017 Wellcome Image Awards.
Alongside this shiny red iPhone 7, Apple has unveiled a new 9.7-inch iPad that comes with a brighter retina display and the lowest price tag ($329) of any of its full-sized tablets. The tech giant has dropped the Air designation as well as any numbering scheme for the new device, calling it simply “iPad.” It comes […]
Apple has released a new version of its iPad with updates that include a brighter 9.7-inch Retina display, and a new limited-edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in a blazing red finish.
(Ohio State University) We live in a three-dimensional world, but everything we see is first recorded on our retinas in only two dimensions. So how does the brain represent 3-D information? In a new study, researchers for the first time have shown how different parts of the brain represent an object's location in depth compared to its 2-D location.
As previewed last week, in what we hope is not considered "innovation", moments ago Apple has introduced a 9.7-inch iPad with Retina display, starting at $329. The pricing starts at $329 for 32GB with Wi-Fi model and $459 for 32GB Wi-Fi + cellular model. Show More Summary
An accumulation of the metabolic waste compound A2E in the retina is associated with the progression of degenerative blindness via conditions such as macular degeneration, and there is strong indirect evidence for it to be a cause of the condition. Show More Summary
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine and Massachusetts Eye and Ear/Harvard Medical School have developed a cheap, portable camera that can photograph the retina without the need for pupil-dilating eye drops.

(Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ)) Light sensitive molecules trigger vision inside our retinas. This phenomenon inspired ICIQ researchers to create a new family of eco-friendly catalysts activated by purple LEDs for unprecedented transformations.
With each new iPhone release, Apple comes out with a signature feature for the brand new flagship, a feature that then becomes the norm for the series. It was the Retina display with the iPhone 4, Touch ID with the iPhone 5s, and 3DShow More Summary
March 16, 2012: Apple introduces the third-generation iPad, the first iPad to come with a Retina display. Marketed as simply “The new iPad,” it’s widely known as the “iPad 3.” Boasting that beautiful screen and Apple’s then-swanky A5X chip with quad-core graphics processor, the third-gen iPad quickly becomes a big success.

WOW: Scientists Have Created an Artificial Retina Implant That Could Restore Vision to Millions. The retina is located at the back of the eye, and is made up of millions of these light-sensitive photoreceptors. But mutations in any one of the 240 identified genes can lead to retinal degeneration, where these photoreceptor cells die off, […]
(Ruhr-University Bochum) In case of ischemic injury to the retina, changes occur in the protein scaffold in the environment of retinal cells, the so-called extracellular matrix. Various eye diseases, such as glaucoma, are associated with such ischemic events. Show More Summary
Current approaches to prosthetic sight involve connecting an grid of electrodes implanted in the retina to an external camera. The electrodes stimulate the production of glowing phosphenes, a crude visual representation of what the camera sees. Show More Summary
