Rob Spence is a documentary film maker, who after losing his eye in a shooting accident as a child has replaced his prosthetic one with a video camera.
Describing how the idea came about on his website Eyeborg Blog, Spence writes: ‘Take a one eyed film maker, an unemployed engineer, and a vision for something that’s never been done before and you have yourself the EyeBorg Project.’
His childhood toy of the Six Million Dollar Man also inspired him to pursue the project.
Spence refers to himself as ‘the eyeborg guy’, embracing the term bionic which involves fusing technology with the human body.
Whilst the camera does not restore his vision and is not connected to his brain it does give him the ability to create films wherever he is, transmiting wirelessly to a recording device.
