Contact lenses will project images directly onto your eyeballs

Forget 3D TVs and virtual reality displays— in the future, you’ll have images projected directly onto your retina from contact lenses. So if you think listening to people talk on their cellphone in the grocery store is annoying, wait til you’ve got people at the bank, staring blankly off into space like they’re tripping balls.
Researchers at the University of Washington have been working on extremely tiny and semi-transparent LEDs designed to be integrated into contact lenses. So far, they’ve managed to create red pixels and blue pixels, and when they can figure out green ones, they’ll be able to make full color displays.

Despite being millimeters from your retinas, the images created by the lenses will be in perfect focus, and when the display is turned off, everything will be transparent. Since the lenses are inside your eyelids, though, you can’t un-see anything that they decide to project, which is something that you’ll have to consider when you’re watching something especially scary or gross on them. Power will come from a beltpack that transmits electricity wirelessly to a resonating antenna in the lens itself, and data will be transmitted the same way so that you don’t have to plug HDMI cables into your eye sockets.


Great.......1 more thing people will be driving with.
