Prosthetic Eye?

Canadian filmmaker Rob Spence said recently that he would install a prosthetic eye with a camera and a wireless transmitter into the sock from which one of his eyes had been removed as the result of a childhood accident. He hopes to control the prosthetic eye in the same way that his muscles control his good eye; to record what his eyes see, and his first project will be a documentary on people's attitudes about privacy in an "Orwellian society." (Remember 1984). Spence says, "The best way to make a connection (with an interviewee) is through eye contact," he said. "When you bring in a camera, people change."
