Strange Days are here

Anyone remember the 1995 movie Strange Days? Set in 1999, it featured a small head-mounted device that recorded the sensory input of the wearer. In 1999, a Harvard researcher discovered a way to see through the eyes of cats by monitoring the activity of neurons. He was able to create low-resolution video of the cat's surroundings.

If extended to humans in a non-intrusive manner, this could provide an interesting alternative to conventional video cameras. Human eyes are light-weight, unobtrusive, hard to confiscate and use a long-lasting battery. Jokes aside, electronic-biological interactions will will play a big role in wearable computing. I look forward to what uses people will find for video vision.
