BRUSSELS (Reuters) – 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/

This looks like it's going to be a great flick. I've worked with Rob on a few projects before and he's a really funny guy. I'm curious about the technical specs of the camera. Does it shoot NTSC I wonder?

Well it wouldn't be very undercover if he had to hit it with dustoff.
