After Tanya Vlach of San Francisco lost her eye in a car accident in 2005, she received a squishy prosthetic eye. While it must be a total blast at parties, she’s looking for more.  So she’s made a public outcry on her blog for experts to engineer a webcamera that would fit inside her eye.  It would substitute for her left field of vision and allow her to record her life. 

She’s gathered some statistics about webcams (presumably from the Google machine) but claims “I’m no engineer!”  She needs your help, would-be geek heroes.  Here are the specs:
