Even as you do shady stuff on the internet or spend hours chatting away with friends, someone is watching you!! It was none other than Edward Snowden who spilled a major can of beans revealing the technology behind NASAs optic nerve operation which had an ability that will undoubtedly shock you out of your wits.
