Building the Bionic Eye

Rob Spence, a documentarian from Canada, will share his amazing story at the 6Sight® Future of Imaging Conference, where attendees will hear the speaker discussing the real life bionic eye he is making to replace his lost right eye.

Spence came to see an opportunity in his loss. He is constantly trying to film everything in a unique, high-tech way.
"Eventually, it occurred to me that I could have a high-tech, wireless camera eye to replace the real eye that I lost," he said. "I am close to a working prototype and have a film in development about the whole thing that will be called 'Eye 4 an Eye.'"

Joe Byrd, president of 6Sight, felt Spence would be an interesting addition to the speaker lineup."Rob seemed like the perfect person to talk about how technology and the human experience are blending more and more," Byrd said. "He is really taking advantage of the small camera technology that is out there and blurring the borders between vision and imaging. Let's face it, it's just plain cool."
