FOX NEWS: Eye Robot?
I’m an italian journalist from Max magazine and I would like to ask you some questions.
Did you already replaced your eye with the webcam?
Which kind of images you’ll film and which art performance will you make with the images you’ll collect?
What do you think the webcam can see that the the eye cannot see?
Will the webcam be permanente or just an experiment?
How your life can be conditioned by the webcam? Will you behave al the time according to the presence of the webcam?
I’ll write an article about your experience and your answers will be very helpful.
Hey Tanya,mi chiamo Walter ed ho il tuo stesso piccolo problema,a me manca il sinistro ma è ancora l’originale non ho nessuna protesi,e mi auguro che tu riesca a fare l tuo progetto, e ricorda”In un mondo di ciechi un guercio è Re”
Check out this short paper I wrote a few years ago, I think you might find it applies to your situation completely. http://www.secretreality.com/old/words/the_yellow_brick_road.htm
Also check out the Vuzix company, they’ve done some interesting things with small affordable cameras: http://www.vuzix.com/site/_photo/sheet/Vuzix_Wrap_920AV_Brochure.pdf Look at the bottom right.
You should definitely try to get in touch with Kevin Warwick (contact info at the bottom of my paper) and without question you should talk to William Dobelle http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_H._Dobelle
Also here is an article WIRED magazine did on patient Jens who has a Dobelle implant: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/10.09/vision_pr.html
Good luck with your quest!
