- Eyeborg - Video Enabled Prosthetic Eye Fuels Privacy Debate | Singularity Hub
When he was a child Rob Spence lost one of his eyes in a shotgun accident. Now as an adult, Rob is a filmmaker working on a documentary called Eyeborg: a thrilling effort to replace his missing eye with a prosthetic eye equipped with a video camera that can wirelessly record everything he sees. The project is an exciting journey for the imagination, tempting us with an approaching era where prosthetic components surpass the capabilities of natural human body parts. More importantly the project joins a series of recent examples that challenge us to contemplate a world where 24/7 surveillance of everything around us is not only possible, but common.
