Professor Has Camera Surgically Implanted In the Back of His Head
There won’t be any cheating in professor Wafaa Bilal’s class anymore. The New York University photography professor is having a camera surgically implanted in the back of his head. The camera will take a still picture every minute for one year, and the best shots will be put on display at a new museum in Qatar. Visitors can also watch a live stream of images from the camera which has some NYU administrators and faculty worried about student privacy. “Obviously you don’t want students to be under the burden of constant surveillance; it’s not a good teaching environment,” said Fred Ritchin, associate chairman of the department.
