Eyeborg – Filmmaker replaces eye with a Camera
Rob Spence, A film-maker who lost his eye during a shooting accident as a child has turned his prosthetic one into a video camera.
The technology used is the same as in a wireless lapel microphone with a transmitter and receiver. However, the wireless transmits a video signal rather than a sound signal from the tiny camera inside Rob’s prosthetic eye.
According to Rob, technology is already advanced and the possibilities are endless in the future.
“People say no one would ever cut off their own arm and replace it, but if the technology gets there – and it looks like it will – people will think about it.”
This is impressive, but can it fire laser beams?
