Human cyborgs, a concept made popular by comic books and science fiction, refer to individuals who have integrated technology into their bodies, enhancing their capabilities beyond human limitations. Characters like Cyborg from DC Comics and Iron Man from Marvel are iconic examples. Both of them became human robots after going through a dangerous phase of life. And now a real-life man has tried adding this to his life. 

The video shared by @interesting_all showcases a unique adaptation, where a man who lost an eye to cancer has ingeniously transformed his prosthetic eye into a functional flashlight. By embedding a torch within his prosthetic, he not only addresses a physical need but also adds a creative twist to his daily life. 

He answered some questions that people asked about the light. Next on the video, "Battey life: 20 hours as a flashlight and it does not get hot" was written. He turned the light on, and then the video text shows, "This is half of my maximum power output. Safety is paramount; I will work my way to full power eventually." Next in the video text, it is written, "I like to call it my titanium skull lamp. It's perfect for reading in the dark as well." "The power source and all hardware are safely contained inside the prosthetic eye." 

The video's popularity underscores the fascination and curiosity people have towards the merging of human and technological elements. It has more than 31 lakh views with 56,000 likes.
