Nutty Professor Grows Ear on Arm
Talk about having something surprising up his sleeve, Stelarc, an award-winning Australian performance artist is growing an ear on his arm, for art's sake, he says. Part surgical, part human, the artist's own tissue are being used so it becomes a living, feeling and functioning part of his body! Also a professor at Curtin University in Perth, western Australia, showed off his creation in a television interview. Although his arm ear can't hear yet, Stelarc plans to implant a Wi-Fi enabled microphone connecting people across the globe who'll be able to 'tune in' to him 24/7.
