Filmmaker plans

A Canadian filmmaker plans to have a mini camera installed in his prosthetic eye to make documentaries and raise awareness about surveillance in society. Rob Spence 36 who lost an eye in an accident as a teen-ager said his so-called Project Eyeborg is to have the camera a battery and a wireless transmitter mounted on a tiny circuit board. http www.eyeborgblog.com “Originally the whole idea was to do a documentary about surveillance. I thought I would become a sort of super hero … fighting for justice against surveillance ” Spence said.

“In Toronto there are 12 000 cameras. But the strange thing I discovered was that people don t care about the surveillance cameras they were more concerned about me and my secret camera eye because they feel that is a worse invasion of their privacy.”

Spence in Brussels to appear at a media conference said no part of the camera would be connected to his nerves or brain. He does not intend to create a reality TV show and the camera will be switched off when not needed he said. “I don t want to go into a locker room. I don t want to show the world me going to the bathroom either … I m not a life-caster and I don t plan to be one ” he said.
