In late 2008 filmmaker Rob Space announced his plan to put a video camera in his skull to replace an eye he lost in an unfortunate accident. However, instead of connecting the camera to his brain (if possible), Spence sought to become a “lifecaster,” recording the feed on an external device. Well, his bionic eye is finally up and running and he’s even partnered with company Square Enix to create a documentary about state-of-the-art prosthetics and cybernetics.
The short film (which can be seen below), is to celebrate the launch of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. But, this isn’t just some commercial for a game, it’s an in-depth exploration of cutting edge leg, arm, and eye replacement technology. Check the video out below — but be warned, there are a few images that those with a weak stomach may not be able to bear.
