The Eyeball Camera
Filmmaker Rob Spence happened to have a nonfunctional blind eye in his socket, so he had it removed, replacing it with a specially built camera. While the recording capability may raise privacy concerns (ala the fiasco that was Google’s Glass recorder eyewear that provoked such a negative response that the item was deep-sixed- well, for now), the positive usage is obvious – those who couldn’t “see” now can via record and playback or, I imagine as the technology continues to evolve, view in real time.
We haven’t quite figured out beyond the “cool” factor how tiny magnets surgically implanted into one’s fingertips will revolutionize mankind yet but they certainly make picking up metal stuff a lot of fun! Theoretically, though, these magnets can aid with helping those who’ve lost sensory abilities in their hands to use eating utensils, operate machinery and just about any other function that requires interaction with metal in our lives. (Presumably there are control functions that turn on and off the magnetivity.)
The research for this article was fun and occasionally, we all need to lighten up, so we hope you have enjoyed this brief interlude from our generally serious topics!
