Installing a camera in a man's head proves to be painful

Wafaa Bilal, an assistant arts professor at New York University, recently decided to become the envy of every parent in the world by installing a camera in the back of his head. The only problem? His body has rejected the implant, forcing him to have the gadget removed.

According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, the setup used by Bilal - a camera held by three posts connected to an implanted titanium base - caused the man constant pain as his body refused to accept the presence of the device. Despite treatment with antibiotics and steroids, Bilal was forced to have the camera as well as one of the posts surgically removed.

That's not the end of things, though, because Bilal has plans to try out a different setup - one with a lighter camera, perhaps - as soon as the wounds from his surgery heal. Talk about determination!

For those uncertain as to why anyone would risk his health by slicing his head open, installing a camera, and walking around snapping a picture every 60 seconds, Bilal had a simple reply: "It's a performance."

So with that explanation out of the way, the young professor will make sure that the show goes on by crudely "tying the camera to the back of his neck" until he can get a new implant and continuing to upload snapshots to a website set up for his project as well as to a museum in Doha, Qatar

SO... is having a camera in the back of your head the "ENVY OF EVERY PARENT" or just crazy?

 I'm thinking crazy. I pretty much know what my boys are into without having to turn around and look!

I'm going to say crazy. At least for now, Kyra still believes I know what she does even when my eyes aren't looking :-)
