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!
