this is my first thread here i saw this story and wonderedcnn link why someone would try to implant a camera in their head
story looks real was reported on cnn


The Iraqi-born college professor who last year had a camera surgically implanted into the back of his head, underwent surgery Friday to remove a part of the device. Despite treatments with antibiotics and steroids, Bilal's body is rejecting part of the apparatus, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education blog.

It's just a really weird art experiment. Certainly not the weirdest thing done by artists.

artists strive to be the first to do whatever they are planning, am i wrong? sounds like something they would do. i know id love a set of eyes in the back of my head. have a contact lens that streams it, lol...
would b hard to get used to at first, but you would get the hang of it

I dunno, it sounds more sane than cutting an ear off.

Vincent van Gogh cut off the lower part of his own left ear, which he wrapped in newspaper and gave to a prostitute named Rachel in the local brothel, asking her to "keep this object carefully."

Weirder!

I'm saying that item you linked is an april fools joke. It doesn't actually exist, at least not for the public. There's even a paragraph at the bottom of that page that talks about exactly that.

That one's simply for ID, kind of like an implanted credit card. It's close, but not quite the same. Doesn't really seem very practical to me yet either.
