A digital camera for a prothetic eye. Is it phophetic as well?

Okay, so I really don’t want to go through the whole shooting incident ordeal that this gentleman did to get to this epiphany-point, but I’d love to have a digital camera for an eye. I think this is a game changer in the same way that the double amputee runners with the gazelle leg addons are. Just because I wasn’t born with it, or just because I don’t have it anymore, doesn’t mean that it can’t be better living without. Cheers to Spence.

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 plans to become a “human surveillance machine” to explore privacy issues and whether people are “sleepwalking into an Orwellian society”.
