Have you heard about the one-eyed guy who’s been building a surveillance camera into his vacant eye-socket? No, it’s not a B-list first-wave cyberpunk story, it’s actually for real:
The eye will include a 1.5mm CMOS camera, an RF transmitter “smaller than the tip of a pencil eraser” and a lithium-polymer battery. Footage will probably be sent to recording equipment in a rucksack, which will presumably be worn by Spence.
His aim, aside from breaking technological boundaries, is to raise awareness of the issues surrounding surveillance in our society.
Appropriately enough, there’s a video, too:
Your thoughts, please – should we be hailing this guy as a visionary? [OK, OK, I’ll get my coat.]
