I am attempting to recreate my eye with the help of a miniature camera implant in my prosthetic / artificial eye. The intraocular installation of an eye-cam will substitute for the field of vision of my left eye that I lost in 2005 from a car accident. While my prosthetic is an excellent aesthetic replacement, I am interested in capitalizing on the current advancement of technology to enhance the abilities of my prosthesis for an augmented reality.

Totally. Hot.

I'm going to out myself right now as a transhumanist. I say outed, not because I think it's anything to be ashamed of, and not that many friends don't already know it about me, but because most people look at you kinda funny when you confide that you could live with the amputation of a limb if it meant that you got a replacement that was more functional than the original. I regret not having the mind for advanced science, because I've often fantasized about where and how I could incorporate today's technology into my body without having to amputate, and without being at the whim of someone else to code/fabricate/embed the stuff.  It's true, this is the stuff of science fiction, and I suppose in that regard I'm in the company of nerds the world over - the difference is, we're also in the age of science fiction becoming science fact, and I'd give anything to be at the forefront of it.  Maybe I can nab a career in HCI (Human-Computer Interfaces) if I stick with psych and pick up some biology/engineering/coding along the way.

Half man, half machine....

You know, I bet there are some girls out there whose fetish is exactly that.

My favorites on the non-amputating side of things are how they've added wi-fi to contacts and created glasses that give you a heads up display by directing lasers into your eye so you're actually seeing the screen in front of you, not on your glasses. Not sure how far they ever got with either idea. It was just a single article I read who knows when...

Haha, haven't we discussed this before? It's down my ally. Hahaha. Oh well.
