endoscope finger goggles

endoscopes on fingers feed goggle displays

Every finger and toe and other appendage is fitted with a tiny endoscopic camera (having a good depth of field and perhaps an auto-focus for extra depth of field possibilities) and tiny LED lamp. The endoscopes are all networked into goggles which provide a HUD-style view of all of the endoscopic camera feeds.

       I like the idea of one or possibly two finger-mounted cameras and lights. But not one on every finger, toe, and "other appendages." Programming the googles (and the brain of the person wearing them) to switch between all those camera feeds or combine them into a coherent whole would be difficult.

       Only for those lacking compound eyes, shirley ?

       Of course - available via your choice of surgical alteration, genetic engineering, transporter accident, or alien infestation. Stephen King did a pretty good job describing how the last one might play out in "I Am The Doorway" (1971). I'll struggle on with my original equipment, thanks.

       I think if you were to wear this device 24 hours a day then after a couple of weeks your brain would get used to it.

       I find this strange.

       Look at it this way. And with a quick hand gesture, also *this* way, at the same time. [+]

       Certainly help in reaching for dropped stuff behind/under the work cabinet. Need open toed safety shoes, though.

       I find the absence of amusing innuendo in the comments strange.

       // innuendo //   

       As in "Perfect for the voyeuristic suppository user" ?

       //Perfect for the voyeuristic suppository user//   

       This is the kind of in-you-endo I was expecting.
