+ - SPAM: Contact Lens Displays: the iPhone of the future?

Submitted by destinyland
destinyland (578448) writes ""We already see a future in which the humble contact lens becomes a real platform, like the iPhone is today," argues researcher Babak Parvis, "with lots of developers contributing their ideas and inventions." He provides an update on the contact lens with transparent circuitry that's being developed at the University of Washington. (Its components will eventually include hundreds of LEDs which form images in front of the eye such as charts and photographs). They've already developed a lens-with-LED prototype that's powered by 330 microwatts of wireless radio-frequency power, and believe the lenses could also be used as biosensors to deliver body chemistry readings (including blood sugar levels). But "What we've done so far barely hints at what will soon be possible with this technology," says Dr. Parviz."
