Sounds like an early version of the EyeMagine to me . . .
A one-eyed San Francisco artist wants to replace her missing eye with a Web cam - and tech experts say it's possible.
. . . Mobile computing expert Roy Want told the Daily News the technology exists.
"It is possible to build a wireless camera with the dimensions of the eyeball," said Want, a senior principal engineer at Intel. "You can find spy cams or nanny cams designed to fit into inconspicuous places in the home."
Want said the camera, which would be encased in Vlach's prosthesis to avoid moisture, could link wirelessly to a smart phone.
The smart phone could send power to the camera wirelessly and relay the camera's video feed by cell phone network to another person, a TV studio or a computer.
In a world where eye cams are common, they might serve as a kind of computerized backup to people's memories, Want said.
"You'd never need to forget anything again," he said. "You'd never lose anything. You could ask it, 'Where was the last time I saw my keys?'"
