A San Francisco artist wants to replace her missing eyeball with a video camera to record her life.

Tanya Vlach, who lost one eye in a car accident, asked engineers through her blog to build her a miniature webcam that could adjust to different lighting and focus as she wished.

She's also requested the bionic eye be Bluetooth capable, have a 3X optical zoom, have a slot for a 4GB SD card, and be able to take still photos.

Vlach told the New York Daily News the eyecam would let her record her entire life or shoot a reality TV show from her perspective....

If she achieves this I shall be among those not in the audience. I can think of few things more dull than the output of her eye-cam.

With all of that in one bionic eyeball she should have specified a few Terabytes of disk space and a fifty inch LCD HD Monitor mounted on the back of her head !
