Filmmaker Implants Bionic Eye Camera

Canadian Rob Spence is undertaking possibly the ultimate step in observational documentary filmmaking history. Coined the Eyeborg Project, Rob plans to insert a camera inside a prosthetic eye with assistance from Engineer Kosta Grammatis. He had his damaged eye (a result of a childhood shooting accident)removed three years ago.

From mass shifts in unconsciousness

With the camera tucked inside a prosthetic eye, he hopes to be able to record the same things he sees with his working eye, his muscles moving the camera eye just like his real one.

Spence said he planned to become a "human surveillance machine" to explore privacy issues and whether people were "sleepwalking into an Orwellian society".

He said his subjects would not know he was filming until afterward but he would have to receive permission from them before including them in his film.

His special equipment will consist of a camera, originally designed for colonoscopies, a battery and a wireless transmitter.

I'll be keeping a close eye on the development of this project.... (yeah i went there)
