Reality TV from the Surface of Your Eye
Artist Tanya Vlach has put out the challenge for budding engineers to build her a web-cam enabled prosthetic eyeball. The trans-disciplinary artist who lost her eye in a 2005 car accident is planning to turn a once unfortunate situation into a life-long art project. Vlach wishes to use the bionic eye to record daily experiences and contribute towards a possible reality TV program. Vlach has requested the prosthesis be able to take still photos and video, use 3X optical zoom, be Bluetooth enabled and hold space for a 4GB SD card.
