"Everything starts as somebody's daydream. And, when you're daydreaming, it is science fiction. It's when you start work out how you put it together, true science fiction becomes real science."
- Larry Niven

Retinal Implant  
  An implanted device that can record and transmit what the person sees.  

"Recording and relaying, Chief," Finnuala said with a hint of triumph. Her eyes with their retinal implants were unblinking as they tracked him. "And I don't need to tell you this is a public building. Knowing what happens here is a public right under the fourth coronation proclamation."
From The Neutronium Alchemist, by Peter F. Hamilton.
Published by Macmillan Publishers in 1997
