In spite of the impressive advances related to retinal prostheses, there is no imminent promise to make them soon available with a realistic performance to help navigating blind persons. In our new project, we are designing a Bionic Eyeglass that is providing a wearable TeraOps visual computing power to advise visually impaired people in their daily life. In this paper the system aspects are explained. There are three different types of situations (home, office, street) and a few standard image

Two types of cellular wave computing algorithms are used: general purpose spatial-temporal event detection by analogic subroutines developed so far, and recently developed multi-channel mammalian retinal model followed by a classifier. Typical indoor and outdoor event detection processes are being considered.
