    I’ve always wanted secret cameras embedded in contact lenses, but this is a far more practical solution – now all I need to do is lose an eye…

    Did nobody ever see “Deathwatch” by Bertrand Travenier?

    From a brooding book by D.G. Compton, a journalist in a near-future where death by disease has been eliminated has his eyes replaced with hidden cameras so he can video a woman dying of cancer. Misery, naturally, ensues.

    I would have done this years ago except I have two good eyes and since there is no pass thru port to the brain I would be loosing my stereoscopic vision I love so much..

    thats why if I ever meet Steve Mann I will mug him and steal his eyetap instead. He works in the next city over so I doubt he’s hard to find..

    although they don’t seem to make a stereo double eyetap.
