That’s right, scientists have unveiled a breakthrough technology that allows electronic messages sent from mobile phones to be directly projected onto contact lenses. This spherical curved LCD display, created by Belgium researchers at Ghent University, handle projected images using wireless technology. Continue reading for a video and more information.
Unlike traditional contact lenses, the entire surface of these can be used to project images and messages. Plus, researchers are also looking at the possibility of also using the lens as sunglasses which adapt to the level of sunlight. According to researcher Jelle De Smet: ‘This is not science fiction. This will never replace the cinema screen for films. But for specific applications it may be interesting to show images such as road directions or projecting text messages from our smart phones straight to our eye.’
