Tiny Camera oh my!


Here's a shot Steve Mann took of me in the lab last night.

Steve is an ace photographer as well as a cyborg/scientist.

You can see one of the camera modules a company sent to us next to my prosthetic eye.

Cool hein?

This is the first time I have heard someone trying to put an camera into their eyesocket...the idea was mesmerizing!
Cant wait to see the first footage from your eye.

The first thought I had was the battery in the cam...for how long will you be able to film do you think?

Congratulations for your initiative!
I have a father that has glaucome in a very advanced stage, unfortunately, maybe your device once ready can help him.
Please keep me posted.

Hey thanks for the comments.

Not considering getting sight restored right now. Just want a bionic camera.

The battery is in the prototype stage right now so I don't know. But stay tuned.
