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.
