Woman wants webcam in eye

In her "Call for Engineers" last week Tanya Vlach is -

"attempting to recreate my eye with the help of a miniature camera implant in my prosthetic / artificial eye. The ...eye-cam will substitute for the field of vision of my left eye that I lost in 2005 from a car accident. While my prosthetic is an excellent aesthetic replacement, I am interested in capitalizing on the current advancement of technology to enhance the abilities of my prosthesis for an augmented reality."

I'd say this is a great experiment to 'watch' - hope she makes some progress.
