Technology: Bionic Eyes

Engineers at the University of Washington are developing a new type of contact lens that can house virtual displays within the actual lens. In its most practical form, this lens could be used to create “visual aids to help vision-impaired people.” Those that don’t need corrected vision but just want to take advantage of the cool technology could eventually surf the web without needing a computer, or watch TV and movies. Some dream of including anything from helpful driving screens similar to GPS to restaurant menus that include the health information of your food–all within your own view, without disturbing anyone else.
