Somebody give this woman a hand!

Eye-Cam Wanted

During our conversation she said she was looking for help in turning her artificial eye into a eye-cam. You know, a mini web cam inside an eyeball. It would capture live video and stream it to a memory somewhere and also perhaps eventually assist her own vision in real time. She confessed that she was not technologically adept enough to hack it on her own.

Have you looked at the specs noted on Kevin Kelly's (very good) Technium website? She sure ain't asking for much:

Specifications for the eyeball:
* MPEG-4? Recording
* Built in SD mini Card Slot
* 4 GB SD mini Card
* Mini A/V out
* Firewire / USB drive
* Optical 3X
* Remote trigger
* Bluetooth wireless method
* Inductors: (Firewire/USB, power source)

Perhaps she's going for cyborghood.
