A one-eyed filmmaker with a camera eye is teaming up with a young Polish Ophthalmologist to create an army of monocular cyborgs.
Rob Spence is also known as Eyeborg because he has a prosthetic eye with a wireless video camera inside. Making wireless eye cameras are tricky because of the odd and small space where the electronics go. Rob is now working with Marcin Jaworski, M.D. – Ophthalmology resident doctor and founder of Next Eye Prosthetics – to harness the predictability of 3D printed prosthetic eyes and improve the process.
Rob and Marcin discuss their methodology and further explore the fascinating world of how we will see in the future. Topics: the future of prosthetic eyes and vision, human augmentation, privacy, open sourcing, and how Rob believes everyone with a prosthetic eye should have a red LED light option.
