Woman Hopes to Replace Lost Eye with Blink Activated Camera
San Franciscan Tanya Vlach lost her left eye in a car accident back in 2005. Dissatisfied with her prosthetic eye, she’s trying to raise money to develop an in-eye camera that captures blink-activated still photos and 720p HD video. Her wish list of features include geotagging, IR/UV capture, facial recognition, and sensor activated zoom, focus, and on/off. Vlach’s Kickstarter project is titled “Grow a new eye“, and has a set goal of reaching $15,000 in funding by August 3rd, 2011.
