The Eyes Have It

The SMH, again:

A San Francisco artist wants to replace her missing eyeball with a video camera to record her life. Tanya Vlach, who lost one eye in a car accident, asked engineers through her blog to build her a miniature webcam that could adjust to different lighting and focus as she wished. She's also requested the bionic eye be Bluetooth capable, have a 3X optical zoom, have a slot for a 4GB SD card, and be able to take still photos. Vlach told the New York Daily News the eyecam would let her record her entire life or shoot a reality TV show from her perspective. Tech experts contacted by the Daily News said much of the technology needed for Vlach's bionic eye already exists, and she says she has received emails from dozens of engineers eager to help.
