Eye wired open

WHEN Canadian filmmaker Rob Spence decided to have his badly damaged eye removed from its socket, he chose to replace it not with a prosthetic, but with a wireless camera. The decision, he says, was easy.”Every person I know who’s lost an eye immediately thinks, ‘I should think about getting a camera,’ ” he says. Although so far, Spence is the only person who has actually acted on the notion.In a world first, Spence and a team of engineers and eye specialists developed an eye-camera, a miniature camera and wireless transmitter fitted into his eye.
