It seems that adding gadgets to body parts is the thing to do at the moment. Last week we had the man with the USB drive in his prosthetic finger and now this story about a man who has put a video camera into his prosthetic eye. Ro Spence is a film maker who intends to use the device to make a documentary highlighting the issues of privacy and the surveillance of society. He lost his right eye in a childhood accident and has recently spent time adapting a mini video camera to fit inside his prosthetic eye. The camera will be able to record everything that his other eye sees and looks just like a real eyeball so people will be unaware that they are being filmed.
