One Step Closer To My Dream

Some intriguing technology news by way of Engadget:

Most of the bionic eye systems we’ve seen involve clunky glasses-cam headgear, but the implantable camera now being developed at UCLA does it straight Terminator-style and keeps your face unemcumbered. The camera, which researcher Michelle Hauer and her team recently filed a patent for, is small enough to be implanted directly on the eye’s lens, and feeds image data to a chip at the back of the eye, where it can either be fed into the optic nerve to aid the blind, or just into a portable hard drive to aid the creepy. Hauer says power will come from on an onboard battery, but we’re more interested in the mention of “optical control signals” in the patent application — and by “interested” we mean “terrified of a zombie android army.”

W00t!!! And by “W00t!!!”, I mean “Resistance is useless. You will be assimilated.”
