NYU Professor finally has camera installed in the back of his head – Video
Operation a success, we told how NYU professor Wafaa Bilal was going to surgically install a camera into the back of his head. Then we told you how he had secretly went through with the operation without telling anybody and wasn’t going to reveal the semi-implant until December 15th (the countdown).
Say hello to Professor Cyborg Bilal whose new implanted camera will start snapping photos every minute, 24 hours a day, and then transmit them via the Internet to a new museum in Qatar.
The camera is not really surgically implanted into his head it is similar to getting a piercing, in fact the ‘operation’ wasn’t even done in a hospital, but instead at a piercing studio that specializes in body modification.
Following an incision, three titanium plates, each with a post attached, were inserted underneath a large flap of skin on the back of Mr. Bilal’s skull. The skin was then reattached, concealing the plates but not the posts.
The base for the 10-megapixel camera, which is just less than two inches in diameter and features automatic adjustment and color, was then screwed onto the posts. Though Mr. Bilal received local anaesthesia, he described the procedure as painful, and said he remains unable to bring himself to watch a video recording of the implantation.
Bilal reached an agreement with NYU to put a lens cap over the camera when he’s on school grounds, so as not to disturb the notoriously private college kids at NYU. But once he’s off campus, the lens cap comes off too, and it’s snap snap time.
So you can pretty much bet that Cyborg Bilal won’t be invited to any parties, who would want a freak in their house snapping pictures of your every move. You really find out who your friends are when you implant a camera in your head.
