Thinking of becoming an ocularist and bionic eyes as the answer?
edited August 2015 in Genetic and biology based mods
Hello all! Long time no post. So recently I was thinking of becoming an ocularist and I started getting curious about what the biohacker community thinks about projects involving prosthetic eyes. I personally would love to see more of the night vision project kick off and possibly even be able to see light in a different spectrum or something like that. But in the meantime, bionic eyes are a thing! If tech could reach a decent size I think bionic eyes could be a great option for stuff like this.
And a glowing red LED for a terminator effect.
There was an eye developed that looked like an actual eye, it allowed the wearer to "see" I think the resolution was terrible, but it's a step in the right direction!
Of course, for people who have lost one eyeball, low resolution is better than nothing, but even then you'd struggle to get anything useful in that space.
Here is the youtube video of the led eye I spoke of. And yeah right now it's better then nothing. But untill the tech gets small enough or we developed a new power source I'll stick to making cool novelty eyes.
The novelty eyes are what intrested me the most! Basically they are any prosthetic that doesn't match your other eye or has custom graphics or whatever on it. I think you could do some neat little party tricks with a little tech in one of those.
