PostSubject: Filmmaker plans "Eyeborg" camera   Thu Mar 19, 2009 8:02 pm

(It's film related,not news related so that's why it's here and not in the news section.)

Filmmaker plans "Eyeborg" camera

A Canadian filmmaker plans to have a mini camera installed in his prosthetic eye to make documentaries and raise awareness about surveillance in society.
Rob Spence, 36, who lost an eye in an accident as a teenager, said his so-called Project Eyeborg is to have the camera, a battery and a wireless transmitter mounted on a tiny circuit board.

"Originally the whole idea was to do a documentary about surveillance. I thought I would become a sort of super hero ... fighting for justice against surveillance," Spence said.

"In Toronto there are 12,000 cameras. But the strange thing I discovered was that people don't care about the surveillance cameras, they were more concerned about me and my secret camera eye because they feel that is a worse invasion of their privacy."

Spence, in Brussels to appear at a media conference, said no part of the camera would be connected to his nerves or brain.

He does not intend to create a reality TV show and the camera will be switched off when not needed, he said.

"I don't want to go into a locker room. I don't want to show the world me going to the bathroom either ... I'm not a life-caster and I don't plan to be one," he said.


That sounds interesting.I'm not entirely sure that the idea makes me feel entirely confortable.I think we as a society are under surveillance entirely too much.I guess the idea of this creeps me out and intregues me at the same time.
