"Bionic" Contact Lens May Create Tiny Personal Displays

Quote:

for National Geographic News

January 29, 2008
A new contact lens embedded with electronic circuits could be the seed for "bionic eyes" that can see displays overlaid on a person's field of view, researchers say.


The minute circuitry could aid the vision-impaired or could be used to create tiny but discernible readouts offering data such as driving directions or on-the-go Web surfing.

Researchers at the University of Washington created the flexible, biologically safe lens—the first of its kind—using nano-scale manufacturing techniques.
The results were presented January 17 at a meeting of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in Tucson, Arizona.
"If it works, it would be fabulous," said Blair MacIntyre, who heads the Georgia Institute of Technology's Augmented Environments Lab.

If only I had this when I was in high school!

Would be sweet if they could tie in a keyboard to your brain so you can type with your thoughts.

Prolly, but I can only see a inch away from my eyes without contacts anyway so I don't think I would mind much.

If it's anything like what you type now then we still wouldn't be able to tell what it is even with the bionic contact keyboard.

The contacts were not turned on just testing to see if having it on the eye was safe.

Nice....Whats next?! A USB port in your arse?! A track-ball on your joystick?! And what if you download a virus? Do you have to format your brain and reload the software?
Although, it would be cool to download all kinds of programs like... Brain Surgeon 2.0 and Fighter Pilot 08... Man, just think, if they integrate it into your brain, college could be downloaded in minutes! Kinda pisses me off seeing as how I spent too many years toiling.... If you take the "College" out of college.... It's just alcoholism!
