Rob Spence lost his eye in a childhood shooting accident and was given a prosthetic eyeball. Years later he would look at the camera on his cell phone and think: Wow that’s quite a small camera. And then he thought about his prosthetic eye. And then he thought about the camera. The eye. The camera. The e..Th….. HOLEY MOLEY.

Rob is working with engineers to have a wearable prototype ready by next month. That is so crazy cool. Ultimately he wants to film a documentary about privacy and surveillance issues – using the eye-camera .  They won’t even know they’re being filmed (until they’re asked to sign the release).
