Eyeborg: Filmaker plans to install camera in prosthetic eyeball Answered

Picture of

"Take a one eyed film maker, an unemployed engineer, and a vision for something that's never been done before and you have yourself the EyeBorg Project. Rob Spence and Kosta Grammatis are trying to make history by embedding a video camera and a transmitter in a prosthetic eye. That eye is going in Robs eye socket, and will record the world from a perspective that's never been seen before."

I'm hoping that the eyeball video camera will pave the way for more prosthetic eye hacks. I've want to embed a laser diode into a prosthetic eye for some time now, and just haven't had a candidate who will volunteer their eye. Common Instructables community - how many of you with one eye out there will let me help you become Cyclops!?!

A follow-up from http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn16914-bionic-eye-cam-to-shine-a-light-on-society.html
New Scientist magazine]: Spence has fabricated and installed an eye with a red LED and battery as a proof of principle.

No mention of how many indie producers he's assimilated so far.

No one is allowed to be Cyclops if they're going to be an annoying boy scout after making the change. Grr. Cyclops. I don't care much for him or Havok. :P I do think this is an amazing idea, though. I'm sure it'll get a lot of people up in arms about privacy, though.
