Rob “Eyeborg” Spence: The first man with wireless camera instead of eye

We have seen all sorts of medical implants and prosthetics that could improve the lives people with certain medical conditions, and speaking of which, today we want to introduce you to Eyeborg.

Rob Spence, also known as Eyeborg, lost his eye due to the accident, and ever since then, Rob has been working with the team of engineers to develop a camera replacement for his lost eye. Together they have managed to transform an endoscope into a working video camera that is placed inside of Rob’s eye socket. As for this camera, it transmits the wireless video signal to a handheld LCD viewer wirelessly, and Rob turns the camera by moving the magnet in front of the camera. So far, this camera isn’t connected to Rob’s brain, but someday scientists might find a way to do that.
