The Eyeborg Film Maker Get’s Bionic Eye – Next Step: Cam-Eye

eyeThe New Scientist reports that Candaian filmmaker, Rob Spence, is getting closer to making his new “eye-to-eye” documentary.

Mr Spence damaged his right eye in a childhood accident and was later given a false one for purely cosmetic reasons – now he wants that eye to become useful as well!

Between Spence and engineer Kosta Grammatis have succeeded in attaching a working red LED to Spence’s prosthetic eye.

It’s the first time that Spence and his team have managed to fit an electronic device (complete with power source) into the eye.

His goal is to create a prosthetic eye that contains a wireless video camera so that he can film his experiences.

A finished eye would turn him into the Eyeborg!!!
