[Random Cool] Man With Camera Eye Probably Hasn’t Seen ‘V/H/S/2′ Yet!

While you guys haven’t seen V/H/S/2 yet, I’m wondering if a screening of Adam Wingard’s segment might give Canadian Filmmaker Rob Spence pause before going ahead with his plan to have a working camera for an eye, though I suppose odds are slim it will actually lead to a supernatural encounter.

Per Unbelievable Facts, “[Spence] damaged his right eye in a childhood accident and is determined to replace it with a digital camera. “Team Eyeborg” has just succeeded in fitting Spence with an artificial eye containing a working LED – a step towards a camera-containing synthetic eye.

Right now, the LED records visual information and sends it to a computer. But it sounds like the ultimate goal is to set up a configuration that not only records information, but allows Spence to see stereoscopically again. Obviously I think this is a super cool endeavor and I wish Spence and his team all the luck in the world. I also hope this new eye doesn’t cause him to see too much.

Head inside for some more images of the project!

    And science marches on ….

    Awesome. I am curious how they would treat the captured images. I really know nothing about this, but people reposition their eyes hundreds (sometimes thousands) of time a minute, focusing on different things in the environment (think of what your eyes are doing just reading this post!). I wonder if the camera could be made to move in this same way in order to match the opposing eye, and if not, how would one “trick” the brain to incorporating the information from the stationary camera in order to make a precise, stereoscopic image?

    I wish I lived in a world where stories like this were what constituted actual headline news, instead of the constant torrent of shit and fear we get from the networks and the big publishers. Thanks Bloody-Disgusting.
