Video of 26-Year Old Woman Hearing Family’s Voices for the FI don't know, but as we're likely living in the last days, we're starting to hear more of these "breakthroughs". While I emphathize with these people, at the same time it is wise to avoid anything the world has to offer, b/c there will almost always be consequences in the long run.
Remember when Apostle Paul says this?
Gal 4:14 And my temptation which was in my flesh ye despised not, nor rejected; but received me as an angel of God, even as Christ Jesus.
Gal 4:15 Where is then the blessedness ye spake of? for I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me.
Gal 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
2Cor 11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
2Co 11:26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
2Co 11:27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
2Co 11:28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
Video of 26-Year Old Woman Hearing Family’s Voices for the First Time
Living a life without sound is something that many people do every day. However, as technology continues to advance, medical science is changing things for the hearing impaired.
A video recently uploaded to the social news site Reddit shows a 26-year-old woman named Amy with her family as her surgically implanted cochlear hearing device is tested. Amy's aunt Catherine posted the video. Viewers can watch as the hearing aid is turned on. The nurse asks Amy if she can hear her voice, and Amy uses sign language to communicate that yes, she can.
But that's not all. It gets better.
Amy becomes visibly emotional as the implant allows her to hear her family member's voices. Her father and son are both in the room as the hearing test is done. Her father speaks first: "Amy, can you hear my voice? Can you hear it?" Amy nods and continues to shed tears. Then her young son, Blake, says, "Hi, mom." He says it quietly a couple of times, and then he speaks loudly so Amy can hear him, and the entire room is moved.
The video has been viewed more than 468,000 times on YouTube. It was uploaded in September 2012, but it gained viral status when it was uploaded to Reddit and up-voted to the front page. Many of its viewers have left well-wishes for Amy. One person wrote, "This is absolutely incredible. Gave me chills."
Amy's family reports that her pronunciation has since improved and that she can now hear words and loves music. Her aunt Catherine said that Amy "loves the challenge to improve more, and she is a joy to be around."
Rise of the Cybermen: The Terminator-style bionic ear that could give people 'superman' hearing
The 3D printed ear can 'hear' radio frequencies beyond the range of normal human ears
It could soon be used in prosthetics, or developed as a hearing aid
A breakthrough bionic ear that can 'hear' radio frequencies beyond the range of normal human ears has been created by scientists at Princeton University.
The researchers used a radical 3D printing technique to create the ear with the electronics of a hearing aid inside it.
They say it is a major step towards creating 'cybermen' such as those seen in the Terminator films, which combine living cells and electronic circuits.
Michael McAlpine, lead researcher and assistant professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton Univeristy said 'In general, there are mechanical and thermal challenges with interfacing electronic materials with biological materials.
'Previously, researchers have suggested some strategies to tailor the electronics so that this merger is less awkward.
That typically uses a 2D sheet of electronics and a surface tissue.
'However, our work suggests a new approach - to build and grow the biology up with the electronics synergistically and in a 3D interwoven format.'
Although McAlpine warns that further work and extensive testing would need to be done before the technology could be used on a patient, he said the ear in principle could be used to restore or enhance human hearing.
Implant lets deaf child hear for the first time
Three years ago, Grayson Clamp was born deaf. Three weeks ago, he became the first child in the U.S. to receive an auditory brain-stem implant—and heard his father’s voice for the first time.
Grayson, 3, who was adopted by Len and Nicole Clamp of Charlotte, N.C., is missing the cochlear nerves that allow humans to process and hear sound, the Daily Mail reports. When the Clamps heard about a new research trial for deaf children at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, they jumped at the opportunity to change their son's life.
Doctors implanted a microchip in Grayson’s brain to help him process and recognize noises. Grayson’s face lit up when he heard his father speak.
Most of the roughly 1,000 people who have undergone the procedure have only a basic awareness of sound. According to WBTV, the Clamps say their new job is to teach Grayson how to make sense of what he hears.
“We don’t know what it’s like for him,” said Nicole Clamp. “We don’t know exactly what he hears. His brain is still trying to organize itself to use sound.”
